The NFB of Missouri is excited to host 2 conference calls this week. Please read below for details.

Tuesday, April 14
9:00  p.m. EDT | Discussion on The Benefits and Drawbacks of Preferential Treatment for the Blind

We will be having a stimulating philosophical discussion about the benefits and drawbacks of preferential treatment for the blind as well as strategies to deal with unwanted preferential treatment. Whether you have a good story to share or some wisdom to distill on this topic, pleas join us for this conversation.

Thursday, April 16,
9:00 p.m. EDT | We are going National with our Transition to Blindness call and changing the name.

For more than a year now we have been doing what we call our transition to blindness call. It has been a tremendous success, and while it does include people who are new to blindness who are looking for tips and techniques, we have found that a number of us who are veterans at being blind also have our own questions. We are also finding that the word transition is associated more with high school to work or high school to college than it is with moving from site to blindness.
For all of these reasons we are going to change the name of our group so that it is clear that anyone who has questions about blindness techniques or has suggestions to offer will feel free to participate in the call. If you have a struggle and need a strategy, this call is for you. If you have stumbled onto a good idea and just can't wait to share it, again, this call is for you.

So, finally we reveal: the new name of our group is, Your journey through blindness. As usual, our call will be the third Thursday of the month. How to dial-in appears below, and we look forward to your participation. This is a wonderful group, and part of what makes it wonderful is you!
