President Adelmo Vigil asks anyone who is interested in building the At Large Chapter to contact him, either by telephone or via email. Call 575-921-5422 or send email to NFBNewMexicoPresident@gmail.com.

Live The Life You Want:

The National Federation of the Blind of New Mexico knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
