Legislative advocacy has been a cornerstone of the Council’s mission since its founding in 1952.

The Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired Legislative Committee advocates for Wisconsin residents who are blind/visually impaired on issues involving local, state and federal rules, regulations, initiatives, policies and legislative proposals.

Through its Legislative Committee, the WCBVI is a strong proponent of legislative initiatives whose purpose is to promote the dignity and empowerment of Wisconsin citizens who are blind/visually impaired. Membership in this committee is open to current and former Board members, as well as friends of the Council interested in furthering our legislative goals.
