At Large Chapter
Purposes, Goals, and Objectives of the NFBNJ At Large Chapter
The primary purpose of the At Large Chapter shall be to advance the general welfare of the blind in areas of New Jersey in which no NFB chapter exists and to function as an integral part of the National Federation of the Blind of New Jersey.
While the NFBNJ’s main objectives are to achieve equality, opportunity and security for the blind in line with the goals of the National Federation of the Blind. Blind and sighted people in the state of New Jersey are welcome to become members of this chapter even if a person is already a member of a local community based chapter. We discuss issues relevant to the state, nation, and our national organization.
We meet on the last Tuesday of the month at 7 PM via conference call and/or Zoom. Please contact President Linda Melendez for the participation details to attend the meetings.
