Rochester Chapter American Council of The Blind New York

A spray of LilacsThe American Council of The Blind -Rochester Chapter encompasses the central up-state area of New York, and is a small but thriving group. We are proud of being the remainder of the large Rochester Chapter which existed from the inception of the American Council of The Blind.

Today, our group is primarily a social group, as we strive to promote the economic, social and cultural well-being of Rochester area residents who are blind or visually impaired, and dealing with issues such as braille literacy, treatment of the blind by medical personnel, and the availability of access to information on medication. We have been known to write letters of advocacy.

ACB-Rochester meets via Zoom on the third Tuesday of each month. For more information about our meetings, please contact one of our current officers:
