NFB of Montana logo - Live the life you want

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.


The National Federation of the Blind of Montana
is not an organization speaking for the blind people of Montana;
it is the blind people of Montana speaking for themselves.


With love, hope, and determination, we transform dreams into reality.

The History of the National Federation of the Blind

The new, free ebook, "Building The Lives We Want: The seventy-Fifth Anniversary History of the National Federation of the Blind" is now available. Use the link below to access options for reading the book, including iBooks, Voice Dream Reader, computer, Kindle and hardware book readers. The page contains instructions on how to read the ebook via all of these formats. As the Acknowledgements and Appreciations section says, in part; "It is not the work of an individual setting forth alone to record our struggles and achievements. Instead, it came into being through the collective effort of dedicated authors, researchers, and technology wizards. It brings together the knowledge and reflections of men and women who have played active roles in the National Federation of the Blind."
