American Council of the Blind
The American Council of the Blind of Texas, Inc. (ACBT)
was organized in Waco in 1978 as an affiliate of The American Council
of the Blind (ACB). The mission statement of ACB states that the
American Council of the Blind “strives to increase the independence,
security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for
all blind and visually impaired people.” ACBT subscribes to this
mission statement and works to be an advocacy organization and
positive, proactive support system to Texans who are blind or visually
impaired. Our state motto is ACBT … Advancing the Cause of Blind
Texans. Although the majority of members are blind or visually
impaired, sighted persons who share the common goals and interests of
our organization are also welcome to join. ACBT currently has ten
chapters and six special interest affiliates.
