Thriving after Vision Loss
Ensuring that people who have lost their vision shift their goals from surviving to thriving. Dedicated to people experiencing vision loss and those that love them. We are especially focused on helping people who are blind or visually impaired thrive. There are two ways to view employment of people with disabilities. One is altruistic; it’s the right thing to do. Not many public companies will ever be motivated by that driver. The other is to recognize their business value.
People with disabilities can do almost anything someone who is typically abled can do. They may do it a different way. As long as the outcome is equivalent or better, that shouldn’t be a problem. People who are blind or visually impaired must learn workarounds for almost every task. That’s not an impediment. It makes them very creative and innovative.

As a national cross-disability rights organization, AAPD advocates for full civil rights for the over 60 million Americans with disabilities by promoting equal opportunity, economic power, independent living, and political participation.
Justin Dart, father of the ADA and one of the founders of AAPD, often called for solidarity among all who love justice and equality. The disability community is massive and incredibly diverse. As a convener, AAPD is a cross disability organization that builds trust and unity through open, honest conversations. When we stand in solidarity on any issue, we have the power to create lasting change.
Disability is a natural part of the human experience that influences all of us. As a connector, AAPD is a bridge that joins the disability community with our friends, adversaries, family, businesses, schools, and the community at large, amplifying a powerful voice for change.
Like champions of justice before us have proven, seemingly underestimated actions lead to significant transformation. As a catalyst, AAPD is action-oriented, building chain reactions that increase the rate and speed of change. A small spark can ignite extraordinary results.
AAPD’s advocacy aims to improve the lives of people with disabilities by increasing their political and economic power. Learn more about where we focus our advocacy.
