Why Support ACB?
ACB members, through their affiliates, propose and vote on key issues impacting people who are blind or visually impaired. It is through the generosity of people like you that ACB is able to make a difference in the lives of people who have experienced significant or total vision loss. Your contribution will be used to help us sustain our programs and services that promote dignity and independence for people who are blind.
What We Believe
You’re not alone in your journey through vision loss and blindness
The American Council of the Blind (ACB) welcomes and accepts you. Guided by its members, ACB advocates for equality of people who are blind and visually impaired, inspires community, and connects you with education, resources, and each other to support your independence.
a bright future.
The ACB has an unswerving resolve to ensure that governments, businesses, employers and other individuals comply with the hard-won laws that protect the rights of people who are blind or visually impaired to participate fully in all aspects of American society. We prefer to advocate through the use of techniques such as direct advocacy, structured negotiations and mediation to address the access rights of people who are blind or visually impaired.
Fostering Voice, Choice, and Community
Current goals of the organization include:
- Working with major technology vendors to ensure that the information and communication technology of the future is accessible to and usable by people who are blind or visually impaired, regardless of how and why they access their technology.
- Partnering with municipalities, transit authorities, transportation companies, architectural and engineering firms, planners and other organizations and individuals to design and build an infrastructure (including sidewalks, streetscapes and transportation services) that is intuitive and accessible for everyone — including people who are blind or visually impaired.
- Collaborating with parents, educators and other professionals and organizations to ensure that blind and visually impaired children receive the same educational opportunities in the most appropriate setting and using the most appropriate tools possible so that no child is ever left behind because of his or her visual acuity. This includes an unwavering support for both emerging technologies and braille — the only written form of language that is truly accessible for people who are blind.
- Striving in all areas of life to promote the equal participation of blind and visually impaired people in all areas of social and civic life — from signing up for a dance lesson, to taking a cooking class, to attending college, to serving on a jury, to casting a secret ballot in a national election, to holding public office.
