The National Federation of The Blind of Tennessee (NFBTN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit made up of blind people of all ages, their families and friends. Our members and leaders provide advocacy and support to blind and visually impaired Tennesseans across the state. We work together to promote full participation and integration of blind people in all areas of life, and we serve as an advocate for change when equal access and treatment of the blind is denied.
Chapters and divisions across the state offer community based forums for the blind and visually impaired to interact and work together on issues at the local level. As a state-wide group, the NFBTN brings the collective experiences of our members together to identify problems or needs and work for change at state and national levels.
The NFB of Tennessee believes that the real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the general misunderstanding and lack of information about blindness that exist. We believe that with the proper training, opportunity and positive attitudes, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical nuisance.
Any individual who is blind, or any individual who wants to further the pursuits of the blind in Tennessee, is encouraged to join the NFB of Tennessee by becoming a member of one of our local chapters or divisions.
