NFB National Convention 2015 Will Live Stream 

The National Federation of the Blind will be once again streaming portions of its annual convention over the Internet.  The NFB National Convention is the largest gathering of the blind anywhere in the world.  If you cannot be in Orlando, Florida, to catch the excitement in person, you can listen to portions of the convention via the Internet.


On July 8, 2015, in honor of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the National Federation of the Blind, we will attempt to set a record by creating the largest umbrella mosaic. Will you be one of the 3,000 people in attendance at our GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ record attempt?
