AFB's Public Policy and Research Center fights for the right of every individual with vision loss to participate fully in American society.

Through AFB's ongoing work to build on the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act and related laws, as well as an international commitment to the basic civil and human rights of all people with disabilities, AFB is building a world where vision loss and disability are mere characteristics of social diversity—not used to justify discrimination.

Most of our funding comes from individuals like you. We've researched the impact of COVID-19 on people who are blind or have low vision, and advocated for meaningful responses to the pandemic. This work is only possible because of donations from people like you. If you value the information you've found on our site, please make a gift today!
