NFADB will partner with other Deaf-Blind family organizations to train family leaders.
The Family Advocacy Training & Education (FATE) will train family members who already possess leadership skills to advocate on issues important to the field of deaf-blindness. The participants will gain skills in advocacy, work together to develop actions around the national advocacy agenda, and be organized and supported to advocate and educate legislators at the state and national level about the needs of individuals who are Deaf-Blind.
The family organization representatives will develop stories and talking points around the national advocacy agenda and then convene in Washington DC for a Day on the Hill in 2023 to utilize the newly honed advocacy skills!
Our work is supported by organizations and individuals like you.
