CCAC reaches out to any organization to “join hands” here - we link to your organizational website – and welcome collaborations for captioning inclusion universally. Deaf or hearing non-profits, please get in touch soon. CCAC “Organizational Friends” are valued allies in our shared interest and advocacy for inclusion of quality captioning universally. There is still so much more to do!
Contact the CCAC or simply send us the contact information as listed below for others. An “organizational friend” carries no cost nor obligation; it’s a way to add your link to those below, build bridges for captioning inclusion, and show support for the CCAC mission and goals. The CCAC is a place to “connect the dots” to add energies to captioning advocacy in the CCAC and in your group too: advocacy that may require months and years.
The CCAC supports captioning initiatives from others in established groups and from individuals who are members of the CCAC or not. CCAC writes letters of support for individual captioning needs, promotes new legislation, develops comments to the FCC, DOJ and other U.S. government entities, and joins efforts internationally. The CCAC initiates its own “CAPs” (Captioning Advocacy Projects) to foster CCAC’s mission.

Bell Association and others to join as “friends” also. All do good advocacy for so many years, for captioning inclusion also, among broader and wider goals. Others who support the CCAC mission are welcome here – parents groups, educators, access organizations, non-profit business groups, etc. Organizational membership is free and there is no obligation. Show your support for CCAC volunteer advocates for captioning inclusion wherever needed.
Organization friends are strongly encouraged to select an individual to become a full CCAC member, still free also, and participate in the CCAC members – only forum online to keep up to date with active captioning advocacy among membership, and to add information from their organization when it fits.
Consider also becoming a Sponsor. There are several opportunities. Please contact the CCAC to join or for details about sponsorship.
And the newest spoke on the CCAC wheel, if you are looking for captioning of any sort, is the service online called CaptionMatch. Please go to the website to register and for more information, http://captionmatch.com – just ask! for captioning or CART you need.
Thanks all! Together we are moving forward for the CCAC Mission: Inclusion of quality captioning universally.
