Welcome to NFBOK
The National Federation of the Blind Oklahoma is the state affiliate of the National Federation of the Blind. We know that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
Currently, we have 5 chapters across Oklahoma. Chapters are located in Ardmore, Lawton, Oklahoma City, Muskogee and Tulsa. We also have 4 state-wide divisions: the Oklahoma Association of Blind Students, the Oklahoma Association of Blind Merchants, the Oklahoma Association of Rehabilitation Professionals and the Oklahoma Sports and Recreation Division. We are always interested in adding chapters and divisions. If you are interested in learning more about a chapter or want to start a chapter in your town, please contact us!

NFB Oklahoma BELL Academy
The NFB Oklahoma Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy provides blind and low vision children, ages four to twelve, with concentrated Braille and non-visual skills instruction through fun, hands-on learning in a 2 week day program. In addition to Braille crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, benefit from peer learning and mentoring from blind adults, and enjoy field trips to sites related to the NFB BELL Academy curriculum. The 2016 NFB Oklahoma BELL Academy was a huge success! Thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers for your support and hard work. For more information please our NFB Oklahoma BELL Academy page.
