The CIC monitors and reports on conditions of confinement for D.C.'s prisoners. Because of HEARD’s advocacy, the CIC will be visiting and reporting on DC's deaf and hard of hearing prisoners housed in federal facilities across the U.S. They requested training in advance of this summer's interviews with deaf prisoners and we happily obliged!

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

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.
