Throughout the American Foundation for the Blind's 100-year history, we have confronted challenges and overcome obstacles in the name of a singular, overarching goal: to create a world of no limits for people who are blind or have low vision. It has been an honor to present the Centennial Conversation series, underscoring the theme of inclusivity that we strive to make an everyday reality.
We can’t tell you how much your engagement, thoughtful questions, and positive feedback have meant to us throughout this pivotal anniversary year. Thank you to all who attended, and to the fantastic panelists who shared their expertise with us on pressing issues facing people who are blind, deafblind, or have low vision.

All of our centennial events were free to attend, which was very important to us. But these events are not free to produce, and we're so grateful to our sponsors, and everyone who has been willing to provide grassroots support to bring these powerful conversations into the public discourse. We couldn’t do this without you! Your donations help us provide captions, ASL interpretation, audio description, and full transcripts for all centennial events—as well as create impactful advocacy and employment programs and sustain AFB's mission to create a world where inclusion knows no limits.
