Increased communication between incarcerated people and their loves ones decreases recidivism, and improves reentry outcomes after release. Phone calls are people’s lifelines to their support networks. Staying in touch with family and support networks helps people get through their time in jail; maintain families ties that they’ll need to rely on when they get out; plan for a place to live and find work.
We’re proud to have worked with many community leaders to advance these reforms, including All of Us Or None, Community Housing Partnership, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the Bay Area, Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, SF Public Defender’s Office, SF Human Rights Commission, Taxpayers for Public Safety, Young Community Developers, Young Women’s Freedom Center, and Worth Rises.
Yours in Financial Justice,
Anne and Christa
