We've been changing the world for 100 years—be part of what the future holds! Since 1921, the American Foundation for the Blind has been at the forefront of creating a more inclusive world for people who are blind or visually impaired—a world of no limits, where everyone is free to pursue their dreams of education, employment, and a life well and fully lived.

Blind and Visually Impaired Women in Leadership

In recognition of Women’s History Month and the incredible leadership of Helen Keller, our most famous advocate, AFB is hosting a panel discussion on “Blind and Visually Impaired Women in Leadership," featuring a diverse group of visually impaired women in leadership roles.

The Inclusive Power of Music

Matthew Whitaker is a phenomenal multi-instrumentalist and the first blind person to be accepted into Juilliard's jazz studies program. Join us as he discusses his passion for music and the technology that makes sharing his talent possible with AFB's Melody Goodspeed.
