Expanding Protections

Encourage the FCC to build on recent success

Early this year the FCC enacted new rules to capping the cost of long distance calls to and from prison. Now the FCC is proposing to expand those protections to local calls, and we need your help! 

Get Involved - Tell the FCC to Lower Local Rates!

If you have a personal story about prison phone rates, share it with the FCC on this website created by the Prison Phone Justice Campaign.  More information about the new FCC proceeding is available in the flyer prepared by the Media Action Grassroots Network (Mag-Net).

If your organization wants to join UCC OC Inc. and others in the civil rights and advocacy community in encouraging the FCC to take action, please join our letter to the FCC.  Deadline to sign on is January 9, 2015.

In other good news.....

The lawsuit brought by the prison phone companies to stop the rate caps already adopted has been put on hold! This means the FCC will have a better chance at winning court and keeping the lower rates!
