The Washington Seminar is an annual event of the National Federation of the Blind where hundreds of members of the NFB come together in Washington, DC to learn about and advocate for legislative initiatives that will improve the lives of blind Americans.
Approximately three legislative initiatives are chosen for priority attention each year. These initiatives are selected from official positions of the NFB and can address concerns in the following areas: relevant civil rights issues; educational programs and services; rehabilitation of the blind for competitive employment; the operation of vending facilities by blind persons on public property; specialized library services for the blind; the organization and funding of federal programs; Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income programs; and other timely topics.
