Over the weekend, Adam Jarashow and Megan Malzkuhn launched a social media movement for online accessibility known as #captionTHIS. Their goal is to rally people to take action on June 6.
Watch the video for more information about the cause. The video is captioned. (Go universal access!)
Here is a template letter for your use. Feel free to add your own thoughts but please remember to be courteous and respectful when writing to any of the companies on the list. Send your emails on Wednesday, June 6.
