This page details everything you need to know about NABS at the National Federation of the Blind’s Washington Seminar and will be updated with the latest information about our events and funding opportunities for perspective student attendees. At the NFB's annual Washington Seminar, members from across the country convene to learn about and advocate for legislative initiatives that will improve the lives of blind Americans. Students play an integral role in this legislative effort, as both individuals that experience access barriers in the classroom and who are the future of our movement. First and foremost, we invite you to work with your state affiliate to get looped into Congressional meetings with your representatives and senators. In addition, we hope that you will check out student specific opportunities for Washington Seminar through NABS.
