El Paso Council of the Blind

Since 2013, the El Paso Council for the Blind has served as a voice for independence and empowerment for El Pasoans who are blind or visually impaired.  The Council’s strength derives from devoted members and the passionate Board of Directors.  Members advocate for disability rights by participating in various local and state communities.  Throughout the year, the Council holds various events and trainings that promote community integration and inclusion.  Past events and training workshops include: Braille for Badges, sensitivity training for paratransit drivers, guide dog meet and greet sessions, a Christmas celebration dinner, accessible voting awareness, iPhone and iPad training camps, and various fundraising activities.
