Civil Rights

          There are any number of laws that try to protect the blind from discrimination, some work, some don't. If these pages accomplish nothing else I hope they will affect your and other people's attitudes so that these laws will no longer be needed. The real problem of blindness is not the loss of sight, it is the misconceptions so many people, the blind included, have of what blindness is.

          Below you will find a selection of articles detailing some of the laws that have been passed to help blind people and some of the batles we've fought to make sure these laws are obeyed.
