Progress: 12%
Raised: $ 172955     Goal: $ 1400000


Challenge yourself! We are challenging approximately 48 million people with hearing loss and their families and loved ones to step up and advocate for better communication access. Be part of the movement to raise awareness and take action!

  1. Find out how you can improve your access to communication. For example, requesting for a captioning device at the movie theater or obtaining a captioned telephone.
  2. Take a selfie showing what you did to improve your access to communication.
  3. Post your selfie on social media with #CommAccess!

We have prepared a list of suggestions to help you get started and developed a Communications Tip Card that you can share with your family, friends, and co-workers to help others understand how to better communicate with you.
