National Federation of the Blind of Maryland Fragrance-Free Policy

The National Federation of the Blind of Maryland’s goal is to be sensitive to members with perfume and chemical sensitivities who, as a result, may suffer potentially serious health consequences. In order to address this concern, members and participants at conventions and other state-wide meetings should refrain from wearing scented products, including, but not limited to, perfumes, colognes, after-shave lotions, or similar products. We want to ensure full participation in all of our state-wide activities.
