The Metro PDX Chapter of the American Council of the Blind Of Oregon (ACBO) is based in the city of Portland. Our purpose is to create life-enriching community involvement opportunities for persons who are blind or visually impaired.
As a chapter of ACB of Oregon, we promote employment, economic, social, cultural and recreation opportunities for persons who are blind or visually impaired by addressing and resolving barriers of daily life in Portland, as well as obstacles to education and rehabilitation services. We promote these goals through action, advocacy and raising awareness.
The Metro PDX Chapter is actively interested in Affairs of the City of Portland, which impact the welfare of people who are blind and people who belong to other disability groups.
The Metro PDX Chapter presents a positive image of people who are blind or visually impaired in accord with the goals and objectives of the American Council of the Blind and of the American Council of the Blind of Oregon.
