The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
100th Anniversary State Convention
Nov. 6-8, 2020 (Online)
We of the National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota are delighted to announce plans for our 100th annual state convention.
The National Federation of the Blind's 39th Annual Walk for Opportunity (socially-distanced edition) will take place on September 12, 2020. This year, our 10-kilometer walk will occur in multiple cities around the state, with multiple routes—and with new ways to capture the same sense of community and purpose as all of the 38 walks before it!
May 27th, 2020, was the 100th anniversary of the founding of the organization we now call the National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota. Federationists from all over the state and beyond helped put together a review of some of the ways we have made a difference throughout these 100 years. The presentation streamed every half hour all day on May 27th.
