The American Council of the Blind offers a wide variety of programs and services to help people who are blind or visually impaired.

American Council of the Blind

The ACB strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and quality of life, for all blind and visually-impaired people.

ACB accepts all people who are blind or visually impaired, regardless of their skills or abilities.

ACB believes that people who are blind or visually impaired should strive to be the best they can be, and that each blind or visually impaired person has the right and responsibility to define success on his or her own terms. Put another way, ACB does not believe that there is a single “right” way to be blind.

ACB believes that it is a fundamental responsibility of government at every level to provide a framework of laws, policies, infrastructure, tools and training that permits people who are blind or visually impaired to participate equally in all aspects of society, including education, employment, civic and spiritual life.

ACB believes that a strong national ACB organization exists to establish and promote national advocacy priorities and to guide and support our state and special interest affiliates, but ACB believes in the autonomy of the state and special interest affiliates for determining and acting in accordance with the best interests of their individual members and chapters. Put simply, the ACB national organization exists to meet the needs of our individual members, local chapters, and state and special interest affiliates.
