The Right to Connect: Life or Death Right Now

  • The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to treat families of incarcerated people like everyone else and demand that the telephone companies that serve them step up and offer free service during this crisis;
  • The FCC to ensure that low-income people who rely on the Lifeline program to provide affordable telecommunications services can qualify for unlimited cell-phone minutes and texts so they can access important services while they are required to shelter in place.
  • Congress to appropriate $2–3 billion per month to give all low-income people access to an emergency broadband benefit — free, high quality broadband during this crisis.

Join the MediaJustice network petition for FCC prison #phonejustice, for prison #phonejustice in Congress and the AccessNow petition for broadband for all.
