Join the AFB Town Halls

AFB was proud to announce the release of the Flatten Inaccessibility research report, the culmination of survey findings from 1,921 U.S. participants who are blind or have low vision to determine how they were affected in areas including transportation availability, healthcare, access to food and supplies, employment, education, and voting during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us for a series of town halls to engage in dialogue sparked by the Flatten Inaccessibility and Access and Engagement surveys.

Our Commitment

We grieve for Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. We join with our colleagues in the civil rights community in calling on all levels of our government to commit to substantive and meaningful reform. And we commit to examining our own practices, and living our values, every day, to build a world of no limits for all.
