A New Civil Right is unique because it offers the only comprehensive overview of all federal laws and regulations on telecommunications access for people with hearing loss — both the history of those laws and their contents. "I wanted to share with people," she says, "how extraordinary these struggles were." The book also lays out a road map for how people in the future can continue to shape public policy in this field.

Her efforts have been applauded by the deaf and hard of hearing community with scores of letters and accommodations, among them an award presented by the National Association for the Deaf.
