Closed Captioning Now! sign now


Please reverse the decision made by the Department of Education that over 200 TV shows such as Law & Order and The Simpsons are inappropriate for Deaf/Hard of Hearing people. Making a TV show inaccessible is to create an obstacle to 28 million Deaf and Hard of Hearing people.

Thank you for your consideration and support
