Raising awareness and building support

The Braille League's dealings with policymakers and membership of advisory councils are aimed at championing the rights and promoting the integration of the visually impaired within the community.

The Ligue Braille also conducts campaigns to draw the general public's attention to the issue of visual impairment: dinners in the dark, guided visits of our premises, information stands, activities in schools, media campaigns, etc. The interactive, fun-oriented approach adopted for these activities helps to overcome prejudices against blindness and visual impairment, while providing a better understanding of the sorts of things visually impaired people have to contend with.
