FCC will vote Friday to end predatory prison phone rates

The Federal Communications Commission has heard the call of justice.  The FCC has scheduled a vote on Friday to consider the 10 year-old petition of Martha Wright to end the high cost of long distance calls to prison.

 

We don't yet know how the vote will go, but under the leadership of Acting Chairwoman Clyburn, we are hopeful for a good ruling.

 

As the Commission was undertaking its final consideration of this question, we submitted our petition of religious leaders and organizations urging the FCC to act.  Thank you to all who signed the petition!

 

The FCC will stream its meeting on Friday morning via the Internet.  Or you can follow UCC OC Inc. on Twitter, and look for the hashtag #phonejustice.  UCC OC Inc.'s allies at the phone justice campaign are also organizing phone justice viewing parties across the country to watch the FCC's live stream.  Click here and let them know you will be watching!
