The NFB hosts a number of listservs dedicated to specific topics or hosted by specific groups and divisions of the NFB.

What is a listserv?

A Listserv is a method of communicating with a group of people via email. You send one email message to the “reflector” email address, and the software sends the email to all of the group’s subscribers.

You can find the complete list of public NFB lists here.
