HEARD Founder to Discuss Deaf Prisoners at FCC Workshop

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has invited HEARD’s founder to speak about issues important to deaf and hard of hearing prisoners at the FCC's Reforming Inmate Calling Services Workshop on Wednesday, July 10, 2013. 

The workshop is free and open to the public. Please come show the FCC that we support equal access to telecommunications for deaf, hard of hearing and disabled prisoners and their families.  If you cannot attend in person, the FCC will live stream the workshop on its website at: http://www.fcc.gov/events/workshop-reforming-inmate-calling-services-rates

 From the FCC:

The all day workshop will focus, among other things, on the impact of current inmate calling services rates on inmates and their families, a review of state reforms of inmate calling services rates, and a discussion of the costs of providing inmate calling services and how to balance the needs of consumers and correctional facilities.
