Based in St. George, we are the Red Rocks Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind of Utah. Our goal is to improve blind people’s lives through advocacy, education, research, technology and programs encouraging independence and self-confidence.
We believe in blind people because we are blind people. We are bound together by our belief that the blind is capable of achieving our dreams and living the lives we want, and by the love and respect we have for one another and for all blind Americans. We support one another, act with courage and determination when we encounter barriers or experience setbacks, and engage in collective action to improve our lives.
Our Chapter meets on the third Saturday of every month from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., at RRCI located at 168 N 100 E St. George, UT.Unless otherwise stated.
