Welcome to the NFB Travel & Tourism Division.
A proud division of the National Federation of the Blind.
All are welcome
As with almost everything on the internet today, this web site is now and we hope will continue to be, a work in progress. We, in the National Federation of the Blind, want to share the truth about blindness especially in the travel area with as many people both blind and sighted as possible. It is our belief that blindness in itself is simply one of many characteristics which go into a person’s other makeup and we feel it is of a nuisance than anything else.
The NFB Travel & Tourism Division, a proud division of the National Federation of the Blind (www.nfb.org) This division was started in 2002 and we will be celebrating 12 year at the 74th Annual Convention of the National Federation of the Blind, which will be held at the Rosen Center in Orlando, FL. If you have not registered yet for the convention, now is the time to do it, before they run out of rooms. National Convention information is here convention2014
We are not just about leisure travel. Our division wants to achieve equality, opportunity and security for the blind in all things in travel realm.
We work with people seeking to work the travel industry; as either travel agents, or to work with such suppliers as a hotel, resort, cruise line, or maybe tour operators, or being your own entrepreneur. That means education. The travel industry whether you just travel, advocate, or work in it, is over a multi-trillion dollar and there is a lot of opportunities for the blind.
We have an e-mail list on the www.nfbnet.org and the signup for that is:

The purpose of the National Federation of the Blind Travel & Tourism Division is to aid the National Federation of the Blind. It is to serve as a vehicle for collective action by the blind of the nation. This division functions as a mechanism through which all interested blind and sighted persons can come together to plan and execute programs that improve the quality of life and travel for the blind. We promote vocational, cultural and social advancement of the blind; to achieve integration of the blind into society on the basis of equality with the sighted; to focus attention upon accessibility and problems facing blind travelers, to educate blind people interested in the travel and tourism industry; and to take any other action necessary to improve the overall condition and standard of living of the blind.
