SAZCB is an affiliate of The Arizona Council of the Blind, also known as A Z C B which in turn is an affiliate of The a.m.erican Council of the Blind, also known as A C B. We are a nonprofit organization made up of blind, visually impaired, and sighted Arizonans. Our chapter’s primary focus is on issues of the blind in southern Arizona, and we are growing and would like to invite you to join us. For more information on how to join our club or any other question check the WHO WE ARE page.

The purpose of the Arizona Council of the Blind (AzCB) is to promote an improved understanding of the capabilities and needs of people who are blind or visually impaired residents of and visitors to the State of Arizona, and to work to improve the social, economic, educational, employment and civic opportunities which are available to blind and visually impaired people within Arizona.
