CCAC reaches out to any non-profit organization to “join hands” here – we link to your organizational website – ask you to link to ours and welcome collaborations for captioning inclusion universally. Organization friends, in any related theme, are important allies in our shared interests for access and inclusion.
Contact the CCAC or simply send us the contact information as listed below for others. An “organizational friend” carries no cost nor obligation; while donations to support CCAC (all volunteers) is always welcome, Let’s build communication bridges for the CCAC Mission and your goals also.
IMPORTANT – Each organizational friend group is asked to have an individual from their group also JOIN the CCAC. CCAC is an individual member organization. Then the organization has participation in the CCAC’s active Participant Forum online (a google group) and can ask questions, share their own news, and work with CCAC on many Captioning Advocacy Projects. The CCAC Forum online is our working space – our virtual meeting place 24/7. Individuals use the “Join” pages (see above tabs). To also become a Friend, Organizations are asked to use a simple Email to CCAC with the following: Name of Org, Name of Contact Person, Email address, Web address, Physical address.
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 many and varied “CAPs” (Captioning Advocacy Projects) to advance the CCAC’s mission.
