Civil Rights and Accessibility

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

The LightHouse for the Blind is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or discriminated against under its projects, programs or activities on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sex or age, as provided in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and 49 United States Code Section 5332.

LightHouse Meeting Materials in Alternative Formats or Languages

We want to make sure everyone who attends a meeting or class at the LightHouse has access to the materials and content. When you attend LightHouse meetings:

  • Do you need a sign language interpreter or other assistance?
  • Do you need written materials in large print, braille or audio?
  • Is English your second language? Do you need one of our documents translated?
  • Do you need an interpreter who speaks your language present at one of our meetings?

We can help. You can request assistance by contacting us at 415-694-7322 or info@lighthouse-sf.org. We’ll need at least five (5) business days’ notice to provide reasonable accommodations. Securing Deaf-Blind interpreters could take longer although we will make every effort to arrange for assistance as soon as possible.
