National Federation of the Blind Tennessee

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 serve as an advocate for change when equal access and treatment of the blind are denied. Chapters and divisions across the state offer community based forums for the blind and visually impaired to interact and work together on local issues. 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. We believe that the real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but a general misunderstanding and lack of information about blindness, and with the proper training, opportunity, and positive attitude, blindness can be reduced to a mere physical nuisance.
