For over 75 years, the Pennsylvania Council of the Blind has tirelessly worked on behalf of all people with vision loss. Whether advocating for employment opportunities, assuring the right to an independent and private vote or promoting legislation improving access to information; PCB and affiliate chapters throughout the state continue to encourage and assist all those with vision loss to achieve their fullest potential.

Over the year’s communication methods and technology have changed. As an organization we understand the importance of adapting to these changes and strongly believe in the inclusion of all people with vision loss. The PCB web presence is both an example of adaptation and a method for teaching those less familiar with vision loss about current  advocacy issues.  The content in these pages will also document how people with vision loss live , work and play.
