– joins us live on Community Connection
“You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back. 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.”
In Studio Guests:
Lee Martin Sr. – State Coordinator at the National Federation of the Blind, Newsline Indiana
