Mark Riccobono
President, National Federation of the Blind

 

There are 285 million blind and sight impaired worldwide. In the US, 1 person goes blind every 11 minutes.

In North America there are 35,000 museums. That’s more museums than there are McDonalds and Starbucks combined.

Our goal is to create a worldwide network of museums, science centers and learning institutions willing to provide their blind visitors with visual information.
