Dear Commissioners:

For most of us, it’s easy to send a Mother’s Day message.

This isn’t the case for families trying to maintain contact with their incarcerated loved ones. A 15-minute conversation can cost up to $20. Given that most prisoners are from low-income families, people often have to decide between making a phone call and putting food on the table.

Studies show that regular communication between families and prisoners is vital to the rehabilitation process. This aids re-entry into society and supports community safety.

The FCC has the authority to regulate prison phone rates. We urge you to work with your colleagues at the Commission to implement fair and affordable rates “with dispatch.”
