In Episode 9, hear about the actions the National Federation of the Blind takes to make sure that blind people can vote privately and independently in our elections. Also, President Riccobono, in the Presidential Privilege segment, talks about holiday traditions and the NFB’s long-standing assistance to Santa in writing Braille letters to blind boys and girls. Plus the most recent news on Federation activities, and our fond farewell (but not really) to Danielle Trevino as she leaves her co-hosting duties to pursue new adventures and federation activities in Texas.
