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!
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.”

Anchorage Chapter Elections
It is election year for the anchorage Chapter and we are going to elect new officers. In order to vote or run for office, folks must be dues paying members. Only $5 qualifies one to vote! For those who made donations for our State Convention, we are happy to use $5 from your donation to cover your dues. We look forward to getting our Anchorage Chapter up and running again with in person meetings in early 2022.
Pay $5 Annual Dues
Occasionally we are encouraged to write or call our members of congress to ask for their support for a particular bill. I hope you will join us in communicating with elected officials regarding what we believe is best for all blind and low vision Americans.
Finally, Be on the lookout for an excellent fund raising opportunity that involves no collecting of money, purchasing of product, and simply a link that you may text or email to family or friends. Oh Yes, did I mention it tastes good as well?
