Guidebook for Blind Job Seekers
United States 1989
Avraham (Rami) Rabby 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. He 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. Rabby wrote this book with co-author Diane Croft to help provide blind people with practical guidance about getting a job. It was published in 1989 by National Braille Press.
