The South Dakota State Flag

The flag of the state of South Dakota represents the U.S. state of South Dakota with a field of sky blue charged with a version (in navy blue on white) of the state seal in the center, surrounded by gold triangles representing the sun's rays, surrounded in turn by inscriptions in gold sans-serif capitals of "SOUTH DAKOTA" on top and "THE MOUNT RUSHMORE STATE" (the state nickname) on the bottom. The inscription on the bottom was "THE SUNSHINE STATE" before it was changed in 1992. Read the full Wikipedia article.

Governmental Affairs

The National Federation of the Blind of South Dakota conducts legislative and advocacy activities at both the state and the national level. Assistance is given to blind persons who are the victims of discrimination or whose rights have been denied. Such assistance may take the form of attempting amicable resolution of disputes, initiating court action, negotiating with public officials, conferring with private groups or individuals, and seeking publicity in the press and otherwise.

Washington Seminar

During Washington Seminar members travel to Washington, DC to speak with our national senators and representatives about concerns that affect the blind across the nation. Nationally, we work on strengthening Social Security laws affecting the blind, improving access to printed materials, and expanding educational opportunities for blind children.
