Continuing the Legacy of Independence through Information
In February 2018, the American Foundation for the Blind and the American Printing House for the Blind announced a historic partnership with the mutual goal of improving the lives of children and adults who are blind or visually impaired. As of July 1, APH became the steward of several key information resources founded by AFB. The goal of this partnership is to ensure the continued impact of these critical sources of information. AFB is taking its work to a new level by investing in policy and programs focused on creating a more inclusive, accessible society for people with vision loss.
