ABOUT US

Welcome to the official site of the Alabama Council of the Blind (ACB), one of the many chapters and affiliates of the American Council of the Blind. Whether you have recently lost your sight or have been blind for many years, the Alabama Council of the Blind is a great organization to join! Here you can get connected with other blind folks who understand the various problems associated with blindness and visual impairments. The ACB is the leading membership organization of your blind, visually impaired and blind/deaf (hereafter known as blind) friends and neighbors in the Alabama metro cities and surrounding areas.

A brochure featuring the Alabama Council of the Blind (ACB)’s mission, goals, issues, state and national services, accomplishments, membership and publications is available here.

We are a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization founded in 1961, incorporated in the District of Columbia.  Our ACB is a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting equality, hope, independence, and equal opportunity in the blind community through advocacy, education and public awareness. As a non-profit entity we appreciate your tax deductible contributions. We also thank you for making a difference in the lives of blind individuals.

ACB Song


In 1998, Brenda Dillon, along with
Dave Trevino, her husband introduced the ACB Song at the Orlando ACB Conference. They set to music what it meant to be involved with the American Council of the Blind.  I am attaching it for everyone to enjoy.  Click on acbsong. Turn up the speakers and get ready to boogie.  And it's rather sad we seldom play this at our conventions. Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!  Life is too short and friends are too few.
