Jeanine Gleba as told to Paul Lavenhar

Logline

Making Her Point Loud and Clear: The Story of a Warrior Mom on a Mission is the story of Jeanine Gleba and her daughter Grace not only finding a way to embrace living with Grace’s hearing loss, but gaining a sense of empowerment as they fight a grassroots battle for nine years to pass a law reimbursing families for costly children’s hearing aids. For years their words fell on deaf ears, and against all odds with patience, persistence and a “never give up” attitude they changed legislation. Written in the tradition of stories like Erin Brockovich and Norma Rae, this story is about a woman who stood up for her rights and the rights of others – and won.
