You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

The National Federation of the Blind of Nevada 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.

Home means Nevada. The national Federation of the blind of Nevada welcomes you home for #NFBNV20

We are thrilled that you have registered for the 2020 National Federation of the Blind of Nevada Annual State Convention. Our theme this year is, “Home Means Nevada. The National Federation of the Blind of Nevada welcomes you home.” In just four weeks, we will be connecting virtually in our own homes, and collectively as a vehicle of change removing obstacles and raising low expectations so blind people can live the life they want.

What does, “Home," mean to you? What do you think of when you hear, “Home means Nevada?” Share with us by emailing your thoughts to NFB.NEVADA.Family@gmail.com. You can also post on social media and use our hashtags #NFBNV20 and #HomeMeansNevada.

Here is what Tammie Hefty from Reno says, “HOME… In 2020, our beliefs, our convictions, our livelihood and our language has been altered. Common assumptions about what daily life looks like have been challenged and ultimately changed. Our typical routines have been halted and our exciting adventures have been put on hold.

For many, 2020 has been a disappointment and a distraction. But for SOME, 2020 has been a chance to elevate to new heights; an awakening to what is important. Isolating for some has meant reaching and connecting in new ways. The inability to gather in person has meant the ABILITY to gather in greater numbers in unprecedented ways to achieve more and reach MORE people.

And, while today we are AT HOME and perhaps NOT in the presence of those we look forward to seeing year after year, we are still HOME, and HOME means Nevada.

We can be HOME and still experience this conference together because our connection to one another surpasses sight, surpasses touch, and surpasses physical proximity. We can be HOME and still experience a rich and rewarding weekend together because our Federation Family is bound through our shared INDIVIDUAL experiences, our shared passion for INDEPENDENCE, and our shared passion for Living the Life we were born to live IN SPITE of ANY OBSTACLES that we might encounter.

HOME means Nevada…so we can be HOME and still be united as our Nevada Federation Family. HOME Means Nevada…and we welcome our Federation Family HOME today!"

Although this convention is virtual, we need your contributions more than ever to support the work of the National Federation of the Blind of Nevada. We’re asking our friends and family to give $20 for #NFBNV20. We have made it easy to give. Simply visit this link to make a one time gift or monthly contribution.
