Next week, the blind of this nation are headed to DC next week for
our annual Washington Seminar. Many of you will be visiting the
capitol to speak with your legislators. The Washington Seminar is an
annual event of the National Federation of the Blind to introduce the
agenda of blind Americans--the priority issues requiring
congressional attention over the coming year.
The issues are selected from official positions of the Federation and
may address concerns in the following areas: relevant civil rights
issues; educational programs and services; rehabilitation of the
blind for competitive employment; the operation of vending facilities
by blind persons on public property; specialized library services for
the blind; the organization and funding of federal programs; Social
Security and Supplemental Income programs; and other timely topics.
Approximately three legislative initiatives are chosen for priority
attention during the Washington Seminar.
