"Fighting for the Right to Call Home" is the story of the Campaign for Prison Phone Justice is a national effort challenging high prison phone rates, including kickbacks to prisons from providers.
This film is dedicated to the struggle of millions of people across the country who are getting taken advantage of by predatory prison phone companies that charge exorbitant rates for a simple routine phone call. We want the stories of family members to be told in their own words and through their own experiences.
The campaign is jointly led by the Media Action Grassroots Network, Working Narratives, Prison Legal News and diverse civil and human rights organizations. The campaign is also working with Participant Media as part of the social action campaign for Ava DuVernay's film Middle of Nowhere.
We are advocating across the country for those entities that have authority over the rates to lower them where they are not reasonable. The Federal Communications Commission started a process to consider lowering interstate long distance rates in December 2012, and some states and local jurisdictions also have begun to look at local and intrastate rates. We want fair rates for all prison phone calls, and we support social justice organizations mobilizing at the state and local level to encourage action that will reduce the cost of local and in-state long distance prison phone calls.
