Statement from VIA (12/17/2021) Subject: Bills Mafia

VIA: Visually Impaired Advancement works with many clients who are visually impaired and doesn’t condone mocking of them in any way. We believe the donations in honor of the referees have been done in jest and know that our clients have Bills Mafia’s full support. If this is your first time learning about visual impairments, VIA’s rehab services and communication department are working together to create tools and tutorials to train individuals on inclusivity. VIA will be posting a workplace inclusion blog before the year’s end. Please stay tuned for more content.

“When people in Buffalo are aware of an opportunity to help, they always rise to the occasion. We are incredibly grateful to be on the receiving end of the generosity of the people in this community and the love they have for our Buffalo Bills. The funds we receive will provide individuals who are blind with the training, skills, and tools they need to be successful in education, employment, and life skills. We thank each and every person, not only for their donation but for bringing greater awareness to diversity and inclusion and the capabilities of people who are visually impaired. It makes you feel great, not only about the clients that we serve, but the wonderful nature of the people who live in this community. To fans around the world, thank you and Go Bills!” – Tammy Owen, CEO of VIA: Visually Impaired Advancement.
