The National Federation of the Blind National Convention is the largest gathering of blind people in the world.

Mom, two daughters, and dad of the Awa family pose for a photo during the carnival celebration at the 2019 National Convention in Las Vegas.

It is the premier event for training, support, and information for the blind community. It also serves as a governing body, democratically electing their leadership and establishing each year’s organizational priorities.

Although the convention is open to all, our constitution states that only members of the NFB have the right to participate in decision making when it comes to organizational policy.

July 14 – 19

Houston, TX
