Advocacy

Our Support

We are here to support you in locating a point of contact in an organization to request communication access services. For non-ADA covered organizations, we are here to brainstorm effective ways to create communication access so your constituents are included in an affordable way.

We are here to support you in navigating how communication access can most effectively be provided depending on your unique situation.

Civic Access promotes effective communication and we strive for sustainable approaches.

Our Investment

Civic Access stays in close touch with the community and people we serve. One way we identify which barriers are most readily experienced is through local surveys and Town Halls. This information is then examined and assessed to guide our local investment. These are often sectors that are not covered by federal legislation however important for our community to access:

  • Youth Access
  • Health Education and Programming
  • Deaf Blind Interpreting Services and Addressing the Current SSP Market Failure
  • Family Events (weddings, funerals, baby showers, etc.)
  • Job Interviews and Access to Work
  • Public Awareness
