Over 2 million families in the U.S. can’t afford to stay in regular contact with their incarcerated loved ones. Companies like Securus and Global Tel Link have a near monopoly on phone access to prison and jails and charge families inflated rates for phone calls and other forms of communications like video visits and emails.

Communication that’s affordable between the over 2 million incarcerated people and their families are vital to ensuring successful re-entry. Decisions on the cost to communicate in and out of prison and jails should prioritize the most affordable rate for families.
