Avraham Rabby’s Business Cards

United States late 20th century

These business cards belonged to Avraham (Rami) Rabby, who was a lifelong advocate for the rights of those with disabilities, particularly vision loss. He was completely blind, having lost his sight as a child due to detached retinas. He also served as a diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service for 17 years, a job he had to fight for. These cards show several of the positions he held during his career. Rabby used his skills as an advocate to persuasively argue that he – and other blind people – could serve effectively as diplomats. After several years, Rami and others finally succeeded in forcing change.
