             Hand Reading Braille
The National Federation of the Blind Tennessee 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.

2016 State Convention

In 2016, our state convention will be held April 1-3 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, at the Clarion Inn, 2227 Old Fort Parkway.  The mentoring and knowledge you can gain at the National Federation of the Blind Tennessee’s state convention is outstanding. Please come join us to learn about what’s going on in the blindness field throughout the state and the nation.
