Caption Campaign Ads

A grassroots effort to get candidates to make their ads accessible. Besides, it's the law!

Caption Campaign Ad Launches

leave a comment »

In 2008, the Minnesota Legislature passed a law requiring all individuals running for office (who receive any public funds) to caption their ads. That includes radio, TV, and web video. Any ad they create must visually show what the ad says.

“Caption Campaign Ads” is a grass-roots campaign that relies on community support to identify candidates who are using internet media to promote their campaigns. We want to publicize those who are captioning their programs and train those who aren’t on how they can comply with the law.
