BGL was proud to attend and sponsor the National Federation of the Blind’s 2024 National Convention, the largest gathering of blind people in the world. We are committed to standing beside the NFB in our shared fight for justice and equitable access for the blind.

Brown, Goldstein & Levy was proud to attend and sponsor the 2024 National Convention for the National Federation of the Blind, hosted from July 3 to 8 at the Rosen Centre in Orlando. The Convention is the world’s largest gathering of blind people, bringing in over 2,400 in-person attendees. The transformative six-day event offers attendees hundreds of sessions, presentations, and opportunities to network during a variety of different events. Additionally, the Convention serves as a space to democratically elect the NFB’s leadership and set agenda priorities for the 2024 to 2025 term.

BGL was represented by attorneys Eve Hill, Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum, Michael Abrams, Monica Basche, Andy Freeman, Neel Lalchandani, and Jessie Weber. Eve currently leads BGL’s work on behalf of the NFB with support from the firm’s robust disability rights practice area team. One of the country’s leading disability rights attorneys, Eve also co-leads Inclusivity BGL’s Strategic Consulting Group, which helps businesses and organizations achieve compliance with the laws supporting the rights of people with disabilities. Andy, Neel and Monica attended in support of the National Association of Blind Merchants, an organization of self-employed blind persons, most of whom work in the Randolph-Sheppard Vending Program.

Attending BGL attorneys had the opportunity to speak at various forums, meet with several clients during the event and continue learning about the NFB’s impactful work. Founding partner Dan Goldstein, who retired in 2017, attended the event. Dan first took on the role of the NFB’s counsel in 1986. Since then, BGL has represented the nearly 50,000 NFB members, winning significant victories in groundbreaking and highly impactful cases. Our work with the NFB has shaped how courts interpret the Americans with Disabilities Act and has sought – and found – justice for clients in cases ranging from employment, education, technology accessibility, parental rights, voting and more.

 BGL sponsored the convention alongside corporations such as Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Amazon, Target, Uber and Delta. We are committed to standing beside the NFB and collaborating in our fight for justice and the breaking down of barriers that blind people and their families face every day.
