Protecting family visits from the predatory video visitation industry

For-profit video visitation has been quietly sweeping the nation's state prisons and county jails. But instead of using the technology to keep families connected, county jails and private companies are creating and profiting off of misery. All too often, county jails and private companies work together to supplant traditional human contact with video chats, which are sold at a price tag of up to $1.50/minute. For our report on this problem and more on communities that have fought back, visit the issue page.
