2004-08: Blindfolding

Whereas, blindfolding members of the public as an awareness-raising activity remains popular; and

Whereas, blindfolding an individual provides an unreal environment; and

Whereas, members of the NFB:AE believe that blindfolding members of the public is more likely to re-enforce negative views of blindness, rather than helping to develop new and more enlightened views of what it is really like to live one's life as a person who is blind;

Therefore, be it resolved that the NFB:AE goes on record as opposing blindfolding as an activity for awareness-raising purposes.
