Paths To Transition Advocacy

Advocacy refers to providing full access to human rights and legal rights for all people, including those with disabilities. The resources in this section offer support to help youth who are blind or visually impaired, including those who are deafblind or who have multiple disabilities, to achieve full inclusion in the community.

The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) offers resources on advocacy for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. 

The Advocacy and Governmental Affairs staff of ACB (the American Council of the Blind) advocate on a wide variety of issues for people who are blind and visually impaired.  Efforts are focused on issues related to accessibility and health care, with information on legislative action, policy and more.

The ARC of Massachusetts has a comprehensive webpage on Advocacy and Self-Advocacy.  While a number of the resources are specific to Massachusetts, much of the information is applicable to residents of other states as well.  

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) has a listing of state affiliates in every state as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. To find out more about services and resources in a given area, follow the links.
