The Association of Blind Citizens of New Zealand (ABC NZ) is the largest generic consumer organisation of blind and vision impaired people living in New Zealand. We make it our business to speak on behalf of our members, so Society as a whole can fully understand our needs, and how they can be met.
Through this blog, our aim is to provide regular public commentary on issues of concern to blind and vision impaired people in New Zealand. This commentary will reflect the Association's vision and perspective with a view to improving Society's understanding of blindness issues.
This blog will also be another way to keep our members up to date on what we are doing on their behalf.
You are welcome to comment on what you read. While we reserve the right to determine which comments are published, be assured that we will publish comments representing the full spectrum of perspectives we receive.
