I look forward to the calls I get every day from my man who is currently incarcerated. So I know how other's must feel that don't get phone calls cause they can't afford them.

They need this connection to family. This should be free due to families not working during these times depending on where they live and work.

My husband is in county jail for a crime he did not commit, but took a deal bc awaiting a jury trial could have taken a year or more in this time of Covid-19. He’s been awaiting transfer to prison where he should have been transferred to months ago and would be getting 33% of his time instead of 50% in county. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on Securus phone time to be able to talk to him. I’m struggling enough without him here supporting us, but I refuse to sacrifice being able to hear his voice and he hear mine. I truly hope something can be done to at the very least give us a discount to be about to communicate with our loved ones in this time.

I think is extremely unacceptable and inhuman to treat inmates the way they are being treated. We are all humans and specially if many of these people haven’t committed really bad crimes they should be treated with some decency. Please help them when sick and give them a chance to call their family

It's expensive enough providing necessities and other items to help loved ones incarcerated without having to may more than normal for stamps and phone calls to keep in touch. Some people can't afford any of this and must go without hearing from their loved ones for long periods of time. At least in crisis, calls should be free.

Every person should have access to calling their families during these hard times. Money should NOT prevent anyone from being able to call their loved ones

Please allow inmates to have feee phone calls during this pandemic. So many are stricken with COVID-19 at this time and should be able to phone family for support.
