A Step Closer to Just Prison Phone Rates

Today, the Federal Communications Commission released today the long-awaited proposal to eliminate unjust long-distance prison phone rates. 

 

Cheryl Leanza, UCC OC Inc.'s policy advisor said, "By releasing this proposal, the FCC has started its journey to end the immoral system of gouging families of prisoners."  She added, "Next, family members and advocates around the country must make their voices heard loud and clear in Washington--and we hope that the final rule must be adopted with great speed.  We will likely see the companies and prison systems which benefit from this rule begin to fight back.  All people of faith must stand firm so that we can prevail."
