As we settle back into rhythms and routines post-convention, we are excited to announce the ACB Voices Blog is now live and online. The blog seeks to capture the daily stories and experiences of Americans who are blind and visually impaired.
In recent months, we have spoken about the changing world around us amidst COVID-19. ACB has been listening intently to the conversations surrounding these challenges as well as the call for greater diversity, acceptance and inclusion in our country after the death of George Floyd. At the core is a desire to empower the voices of our own diverse family, and to share experiences during these historic times so that future generations may better comprehend where we currently stand at the intersection of adversity and opportunity.
Topics for blog submissions may include COVID stories and/or challenges, how the larger diversity conversation in America has affected you thus far, or your daily experiences as a person who is blind or visually impaired living in America.
Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in either written, audio, or video format.
The blog will also be a space to learn more about ACB’s advocacy efforts, to share experiences from the 2020 Virtual Convention, and learn more about ACB’s ever-growing community. Be sure to subscribe so you can stay tuned in to all things ACB, most importantly the members who make up our family.
