Blind Parents

Breaking Barriers for the Blind

Dear Federationist and Nebraskans,

The National Federation of the Blind of Nebraska 
is launching a Blind Parent group. We plan to 
meet quarterly via a teleconference.

Our first teleconference will be Sunday, April 6, 
2014, beginning at 8:00 p.m. At this time, we can 
discuss the next phone meetings for the year in 
addition to where we want this group to go.

All blind parents, non-blind parents and even 
non-parents are welcome to participate. Our goals are:

·        Educate the public and ourselves about 
blind parenting and how capable a blind parent can be.

·        Provide resources and information to and about blind parents.

·        Offer a network of people acting as a support system.

·        Engage the community in a dialogue 
promoting the ideals and values of the Federation.

If you are a parent, hope to be a parent, work 
with parents or are just interested in this 
group, please join our call on Sunday, April 6. 
We hope to build this group, providing a bridge 
for blind parents across Nebraska. We also hope 
to work on educational efforts about blind 
parenting in our communities. We will need all the help we can get.

We also invite parents from around the country to help us launch this group.

For our first call, we will discuss our goals for 
the group, potential activities and outreach 
opportunities  and what kind of event the group 
should offer during NFBN's annual convention, to 
be held October 9 to 12 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Join us Sunday, April 6 as we get the ball 
rolling.  The teleconference number to call is: 
(877) 394-5901, and the access code is: 4554456#.
