GMP Rev. Geoffrey Black Praises FCC Prison Phone Vote Tomorrow

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), led by Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn scheduled a vote tomorrow on a long-pending petition to reform predatory prison phone rates.  The United Church of Christ's media justice and communications rights ministry, called Office of Communication, Inc., has been active in promoting the cause of justice at the FCC.  In anticipation of the vote tomorrow, Rev. Geoffrey Black, General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ issued the following statement:

Less than a year ago, I joined inmate families as they rallied outside the FCC asking for an end to long distance predatory prison phone rates.  Tomorrow the FCC will act under the leadership of Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn, who heard the call of justice.  We offer Chairwoman Clyburn and her staff our gratitude for taking action and ending 10 years of delay.  We are very proud of the role the UCC’s historic media justice ministry played in bringing about the FCC vote.
