Austin Chapter

The Austin Chapter is an active group comprised of many blind professionals and students living in the state’s capital. The diverse group ranges from teenagers to seniors, people working in the technology field and professional musicians, and blind individuals from all walks of life. The Austin Chapter demonstrates that blind people are active participants in the community by sponsorship of the October Halloween Birthday Wagon Party for the homeless children at the Salvation Army Shelter, the Austin Library Reading Program for Children and the Hero’s Night Out for Veterans. The chapter gives back to its membership by providing scholarships for first-time convention attendees, sponsoring NFB Washington Seminar attendance, funding summer training for youth at the Louisiana Center for the Blind STEP Program and funding other events that support a positive philosophy about blindness.

Information about the Austin Chapter can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
