The Tulsa Council of the Blind is a chapter of the Oklahoma Council of the Blind. It was created by a group of blind individuals in the 1940s and served several functions. Over the past decades, TCB has been involved in legislative and other forms of advocacy in behalf of blind and visually impaired people, particularly on a local level. We have worked hard to develop public transportation, sidewalks, and acceptance of visually pmpaired people in all aspects of society.

Their monthly meetings are held from 5:30-7:30 pm, on the 2nd Friday of each month at the Mazzio's in the Farm Shopping Complex, 5119 S. Sheridan Road, Tulsa, OK. For more information, please go to their website or contact Julie Bailey, 918-355-0842 or email at j.bailey@cox.net.
