Johnny . started this petition to YouTube

On July 30th, 2020, Youtube announced that they will be removing Community Contributions, a feature that lets anyone contribute translated video titles, descriptions, closed captioning, and subtitles that the uploader has not.

Community Contributions is a vital tool for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, as well as those who do not speak English as a first language. By disabling this feature, these communities will be unable to view and understand most Youtube videos, and will be excluded from accessing educational, informational, and entertaining content. Viewers have until September 28th, 2020 to submit their contributions, and will be forced to use auto-captioning or auto-translated subtitles from then on.
