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 2 chapters across Oklahoma. Chapters are located in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. If you do not live near a chapter, opportunities are available to join a chapter virtually on the Zoom platform. Contact us to find out how to get connected.
We also have 3 state-wide divisions: the Oklahoma Association of Blind Students, the Oklahoma Association of Blind Merchants and the Oklahoma Association of Rehabilitation Professionals. We are currently seeking motivated individuals who are interested in forming a Division for parents of blind children. If you are the parent or guardian of a blind child, please contact us. 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 let us know!
