About Us

The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) has a long, proud history of removing barriers, ensuring inclusion, and creating positive change in the world for millions of people with vision loss. Yet, despite nearly a century of progress, much work remains to ensure a level playing field for people who are blind or visually impaired. Today’s social and economic systems continue to produce and perpetuate staggering inequalities among people with vision loss, leading to higher levels of unemployment, increased isolation, lower graduation rates, and poverty. AFB is committed to creating a more inclusive and just society by mobilizing leaders and influencers, championing impactful policies and practices, and promoting understanding of the most effective drivers of change. Our vision is a world without limits, where people who are blind or visually impaired are working, going to school and participating in community life, unhindered by barriers.
