Resources for Individual Advocacy
AFB provides some resources to help individuals advocate for themselves on issues within AFB's priority areas. While AFB primarily focuses on federal policies, individuals can tell their own story to everyone from local service agencies to the federal government.
Our policy team relies on research to inform policy proposals and create evidence-based solutions defined by a clear understanding of the issues facing people who are blind or have low vision. These recent research studies are the basis of several of AFB's current policy initiatives.
