The National Federation of the Blind
of Indiana

The NFB of Indiana is the state affiliate of the National Federation of the Blind in Baltimore Maryland. We help blind persons achieve self-confidence and self-respect, provide information and referral services, scholarships, protection of civil rights, develop and evaluate technology, and support blind persons and their families. We welcome participation by both blind and sighted.

2022 NFB Indiana State Convention, October 7, 8 and 9

Join us for the NFB Indiana 2022 State convention, to be held virtually using Zoom Conference, October 7, 8 and 9. Our theme this year is “Healthy Wealthy and Wise!” There is no cost to participate, so we hope you will invite every person you feel may benefit. However, donations are appreciated, and help us to provide even greater assistance. As an added incentive, for each $20 you donate now through October 8 at 6PM Eastern, your name will be entered in to a drawing to win a refurbished Perkins Brailler, valued at $700.

The scholarship committee has a goal of three thousand dollars for this year’s scholarship recipients. With your donation, we can make this goal a reality. You can send the donation to our state treasure Kane Brolin using: Cash App: $nfbofindiana or the button below to donate via Square.

Live the Life You Want! Blindness is not what holds you back!

NFB One Minute Message

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. Live the life you want! Blindness is not what holds you back!

NFB Pledge

I pledge to participate actively in the efforts of the National Federation of the Blind to achieve equality, opportunity, and security for the blind; to support the policies and programs of the Federation; and to abide by its constitution.
