The Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Karen Peltz Strauss retired yesterday from her position as deputy bureau chief of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau. FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel tweeted yesterday, “Today the FCC says goodbye to Karen Peltz Strauss, who is retiring from the agency. She has been a powerful force behind every major communications accessibility law in the last 25 years. She’s a hero of mine who has quietly done so much to improve the lives of so many.” Peltz Strauss was particularly active in the deaf community and was described as an “accessibility rights crusader” by Dave Grimaldi, EVP of Public Policy for the Interactive Advertising Bureau. The FCC hasn’t announced who will replace Peltz Strauss as deputy chief of the bureau.
