Services

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) is a national organization of blind, visually impaired and sighted individuals whose purpose is to work toward independence, security, equality of opportunity, and improved quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people. ACB programs and services include "The ACB Braille Forum", a bimonthly publication available in braille, large print, on cassette and data CD, and by e-mail subscription and at www.acb.org. The magazine is free to members; all others pay $25 per format per year. ACB also offers a number of college scholarships (must be legally blind in both eyes). The council actively participates in the national legislative and advocacy scene. ACB is also a valuable resource for information on programs and services in the blindness field and laws affecting blind people.
