"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something, and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do."
- Helen Keller
As a teacher or parent of a child who is blind or visually impaired, you wear a lot of hats, but one of the most important might be the "advocate" cap. Speaking up and making a difference at the state and national levels is a natural extension of the good work you're doing every day to make sure your kids get the help and resources that they need.
The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) has launched a national campaign to better meet the special needs of students with visual impairments. Please take a moment to learn about Cogswell-Macy Act, and help us to get senators and representatives to sponsor this important legislation. Over 40 organizations are joining with AFB in supporting this act.
