Can you relate to this story? A blind person has done well in school, applied for jobs with and without disclosing his blindness, repeatedly gotten rejected until it seemed like there was no end in sight, and finally found a job he didn’t really want? We can and we’re sure you can too. The system is broken, and many of us feel like very few people care and nothing can be done about it. The American Foundation for the Blind is one of the organizations working on this seemingly impossible problem, so we invited Dr. Kirk Adams, President and CEO of AFB to tell us his story and why he feels AFB is positioned to make a difference.
