> The Community Service Division is a new and
> proud division of the National Federation of the Blind.

> Service Division is to secure equality of
> opportunity for the blind through community service and advocacy.
> We believe that by serving amongst and along
> side our sighted peers we can model positive
> blindness philosophy and shatter misconceptions.
> we believe that by giving back and getting
> involved, we can show how the blind can liv
> the life we want. We can show what weve
> always believed; that blindness is not, has not
> and will not be
> the characteristic that defines us or our
> future, that through volunteering our time
> and serving in the communities in which we
> live, we slowly but surely raise expectations of blindness.
> The Division has established four separate and
> unique committees, filled by Passionate,

>blindness is not what holds you back.

>no te lo impide.
> ...The challenges we face will not be solved
> with one meeting in one night. Change will not
> come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
>We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are
