National Federation of the Blind 2015 Convention UpdatesPublished on
Today, July 9, 2015, the National Federation of the Blind will discuss 29 proposed resolutions, at the National Convention in Orlando, FL. The National Federation of the Blind is a vital participant in alerting the Department of Justice, policymakers and voters of inequities in ambiguous language or interpretation of ADA laws and related policies.
This year the proposed resolutions range from employment concerns to electronic accessibility for people who are blind to guide dog ownership to education. All 29 proposals can be found at NFB.org.
Yesterday, July 8, 2015, the world record for an umbrella mosaic was broken at the National Convention. It read, “Live the Life You Want” and 2,480 people participated in the event. The past record was held by a group of 2,170 people.
Don’t forget you can watch the portions of the annual convention over the Internet.
