NFADB has partnered with other DeafBlind family organizations to train family leaders.
The Family Advocacy Training & Education (FATE) trains family members who already possess leadership skills to advocate on issues important to the field of deaf-blindness. The participants gain skills in advocacy, work together to develop actions around the national advocacy agenda, and all wishing to continue to advocate join the Family Advocacy Coalition Educating (FACE) for DeafBlind. This family coalition advocates and educates legislators at the state and national level about the needs of individuals who are DeafBlind.
These family leaders develop stories and talking points around the national advocacy agenda and then convene in Washington DC for the DeafBlind Day on the Hill to utilize the newly honed advocacy skills!
Our work is supported by organizations and individuals like you.
