Our Mission

The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and quality of life, for all blind and visually-impaired people.

Accessible Currency

Did you know that the paper currency of many countries is easily identifiable to blind and visually impaired people, but our own United States paper currency is not?

The American Council of the Blind is working to assure that some day, people who are blind or visually impaired can easily identify United States paper currency without the assistance of any other person or device. Our efforts have paid off!
