Welcome to the National Federation of the Blind of North Dakota World-Wide Web Site

The real problem of blindness is not the lack of eyesight. The real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of information that exists. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness is only a physical nuisance.

We are a proud member of the National Federation of the Blind, the Nation's oldest and largest organization of blind persons in the United States with local chapters and affiliated divisions of blind consumers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Our purpose is to integrate the blind of North Dakota and our nation in to society on a basis of equallity with our sighted neighbors. We're accomplishing this through innovative and exciting initiatives. Most important of all we are the blind speaking for ourselves.

Our new home on the World-Wide Web is a leading source of information on blindness and the activities of the National Federation of the Blind of North Dakota. We invite you to explore these pages and learn about our parent organization by visiting the links on this page to access additional information about the NFB and how we are changing what it means to be blind.

This is the official video for our song, “Live the Life You Want,” which was debuted at our seventy-fifth national convention in July of 2015. The video is a montage of pictures and video of Federationists living the lives they want. You can get a copy of our album, Rhythm of the Movement: Federation Philosophy in Song, at www.nfb.org/rhythm.
