advocating for equality, opportunity, and independence for people with vision loss
"Believe it, Achieve it!"
The Iowa Council of the United Blind exists to advocate for and represent blind persons. We seek to promote the blind in their diverse expressions of life and culture whether in gender, age, background, ethnicity, religion, race, sexual orientation, or political affiliation. We exclude no one based on any of these characteristics. We know such diversity will promote an ongoing exchange of ideas and collaboration which in turn will make us more effective in advocating for what is best for all blind Iowans.
