Infographic: Families Paying The Price – The High Cost of Prison Phone Calls

The Wright to Call Home campaign centers on urging the FCC to pass the Wright petition, named after Martha Wright who has been fighting a decade long battle to make prison phone calls affordable for all families.

It can cost a mom more than $18 for a 15-minute phone call with her son in prison and families are forced to pay these excessive rates or give up staying connected. Our communities urgently need federal oversight of interstate prison phone call rates. You can help ensure families can stay connected by taking action and signing the petition to end predatory phone rates.

Check out this infographic which shows how millions of people – including communities, children and families of those incarcerated- are paying the price for the sky high costs of keeping in touch.
