About the National Federation of the Blind:  

 

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. You can have the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

 

The National Federation of the Blind of Alaska is delighted to share to all interested in learning more about the NFB. Please observe the link to a video "WHAT WE KNOW" And a video about "How Blind People Successfully Raise Children". THIS VIDEO, features NFB Jernigan institute Executive Director Mark Riccobono and his three children: Austin, Oriana, and Elizabeth.

 

The NFB is the leading force in the blindness field today and the voice of the nation's blind. NFB of Alaska is the oldest organization for the blind in "The Last Frontier". Our headquarters is now located in Fairbanks, with branch Chapters in Anchorage and Fairbanks.
