California Communities United Institute is committed to making its facilities and services accessible to disabled Californians. If there are additional ways in which we can do that, feel free to use the "Contact Us" button near the top of this page to send us a message and tell us how.
One of the main services we provide is an E-mail alert system in which we E-mail, to our members, sample messages to legislators on important legislation of the day. We provide a relatively easy process for people to use which enables them to send those messages to legislators who need to hear from them.
Some people have limited vision. For them, we provide sample messages in an enlarged font to make it easier for them to see and read the sample message. Instructions in how to respond to alerts are also provided in enlarged font. If you would like to receive alerts in an enlarged font, you may use the above "Contact Us" button to request that service.
Some people have no vision at all and read the messages and alerts we send with reading software which provides an audible version of those messages and alerts. Such people often find it difficult to use the regular process for responding to our alerts. We provide a simple process for them. They send us a message in response to an alert on a particular bill. The message simply says something like "Respond AB 22" or Respond SB 29". We then prepare a message for them and send it to the legislators for them.
Similarly some people have limited physical abilities that makes it impossible for them to perform the usual process for responding to our alerts. They too can send us simplified messages, like those above, and we will send E-mails to legislators in their names.
If you would like this service you can use the above "Contact Us" button to request it. In that case we will need your full name and address. Once the service has been established you can just send us the simplified message and we will send messages to legislators in your name.
