The National Federation of the Blind Performing Arts Division, a 
strong and proud division of the National Federation of the Blind, is 
seeking enthusiastic, hardworking members to serve on our blindness 
and entertainment committee.  As an offshoot of the Let Us Play Us 
campaign, this committee will become the arm of the Performing Arts 
Division that cultivates connections in Hollywood and increases our 
organizations presence in the discussion of blindness in the 
entertainment industry.  If you are interested in securing 
opportunity, equality, and full integration in all aspects of the 
entertainment industry, please consider how you can help us.  Our 
immediate goals involve establishing partnerships in education to 
identify blind talent for prospective opportunities and creating 
informational resources highlighting the capabilities of blind 
performers for the benefit of entertainment industry professionals. 
If you are a performer, have connections in the entertainment 
industry, or happen to be a creative worker with interest and ideas 
related to blindness and entertainment, please email us at 
<mailto:nfbpad at gmail.com>nfbpad at gmail.com. We would like to hear from 
you by Friday, November 1 so we can get started with this exciting 
work as soon as possible!

We look forward to raising expectations of blind performers and 
increasing representation on screen and stage together!
