Announcing the 2018 NFB of Georgia Atlanta Seminar/Blind Day at the Capitol

You are invited to join the NFB of Georgia during our Atlanta Seminar on February 12, 2018 at the Capitol building in Atlanta. We will be meeting with legislators to discuss protecting the rights of blind parents and other issues relevant to the blind community.

Join us from 9:00-11:00 AM in CAP 122 on the first floor to hear from speakers and meet with our legislators about this important issue. Please invite your legislators to join us during this time.

After 11:00 AM, we encourage everyone to set up a meeting with your legislator to continue the conversation about protecting the rights of blind parents.

Across the country and right here in Georgia, parents have faced discrimination and their right to parent has been called into question based only on the fact they are blind. For more information on this important issue, please read the fact sheet.

We look forward to seeing you on February 12!

Please contact Stancil Tootle stootle@nfbga.org or Greg Aikens gaikens@nfbga.org with any questions about the Atlanta Seminar.
