New York City make about $25 million from the families of inmates every year on phone calls alone. This is about to come to an end by June of 2019. You will no longer be paying for your loved ones to call you when they get arrested.
Unfortunately this only applies to New York City jails and not to state prisons, but it’s a step in the right direction. This is all due to us coming out and voting on the issues that effect us and our communities. Let’s continue to make a difference for us and our loved ones. Vote!
