Episode Info: Episode 18 – We Are Family There’s a lot going on in this episode of the Nation’s Blind Podcast. Because it’s fall convention season, we highlight a conversation Anil recorded at the 2017 National Convention in Talking about Our Federation. He spoke with Diane McGeorge, better known as Door Prize Diane, about what door prizes add to the event. He also spoke with Sandy and John Halverson about the SUN Fund and our NFB scholarship program. For In the News this month, Chris and Melissa cover our lawsuit against the Social Security Administration, the Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act regulations, and our hurricane relief efforts. Finally, in this month’s Presidential Privilege, Anil speaks with President Riccobono about White Cane Awareness Day, Meet the Blind Month, and our efforts to better understand the impact of the repeal of the DACA program on blind immigrants.
