As a group, we are four visually impaired women who are dedicated to bridging the gap between people who are visually impaired and mainstream society. We currently do presentations and speaking engagements, provide a podcast of recorded material, and maintain an active social media presence. We are excited to begin working on this blog, and we hope to create videos in the future!
