Why not us, too?

It's the question that I keep on asking each time a focus group gets together to discuss the demands and needs of the disabled community. But for some odd reason, and this happens too many times, the demands and needs of blind and partially sighted persons seem to be either ignored or forgotten.

Too many times we, as a group, are left out of research studies. Too many times whenever a focus group is brought together to discuss issues and concerns surrounding the disabled community, the voices of blind and partially sighted persons seem to be ignored. I am urging my fellow blind and partially sighted brethren to start speaking out. Do it and we stand a chance! Ignore the call and we'll continue to be left behind. Follow the lead of organizations such as the NFB, the AFB, the ACB, and the RNIB. Do not let their work be in vain. You can visit these organizations at:,,, and

I'm Donna J. Jodhan wishing you a terrific day.
