In early February, the blind of this nation are headed to DC 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. 
Three legislative initiatives are chosen for priority attention 
during the Washington Seminar.

We have posted the NFB 2020 Washington Seminar Agenda and Fact Sheets
