Please volunteer soon!
CCAC is an official (or registered) non-profit organization (or charity as it’s called in some countries). And we are all volunteers. Some of us talk together every day online from coast to coast in the USA and around the globe also.
This is a new call for volunteer energies – even if only one hour a month – to help develop and “action” all the Captioning Advocacy Projects that CCAC does, plus some new ones.
The goal is to have a few teams of three to six people each, from any part of the world, consumers and/or providers to add energy to the CCAC mission = Inclusion of Quality Captioning Universally. Yes we can! With your help!
Current major CAPs are the FREE CART offer (i.e. the CCAC Grant for Live Captioning) to educate, raise awareness and make captioning inclusion happen, CAPTIONS CAPTURE THE VOTES to encourage all potential government leaders on all levels to make their messages and live events accessible with quality captioning, and ALL MEDIA ONLINE to be captioned (e.g. BBC, Guardian, NYTimes, more, plus all videos online).
Also, the AIR TRAVEL ACCESS campaign, and the CAPTIONING TRAINING INFORMATION project. Either one of these needs energy and/or new ideas to decide what to do with them. And also, CCAC members tell me we need a SECOND CCAC FILM.
There are also many smaller captioning advocacy actions regularly, e.g. your local theater or video advocacy, letters of support from the CCAC for any individual or group, keeping the CCAC alive on social media, the blog, etc.
By the way, for two years we have a great team of CCAC members who review applications for the CCAC Grant for Live Captioning for eligible non-profits – five of us (myself, two consumers Elsa and Ann, and two providers, Patti and Kimberly). I thank them all! These folks are fantastic because when an application comes in, they are all very responsive on emails. Yet we don’t have enough applications. This is what we need a new team for, now. And for the related Grant for for-profits with large meetings or events.
Let’s hear from you! Email CCACaptioning@gmail.com now.
