Help Us Protect Prison Mail!
The Biden Administration is depriving incarcerated people of their personal mail. Under a pilot program, the federal Bureau of Prisons redirects incoming mail to the for-profit company Smart Communications, which converts the greeting cards, letters, and other personal correspondence to digital scans and then destroys the originals. Incarcerated people can read their mail as a poor quality print out, on the screen of shared kiosks in public areas of the prison, or on a tablet provided by Smart Communications. This program is cruel, unnecessary, and a threat to privacy. It is also a potential boon for Smart Communications.
You can help. Right now, please join us in demanding that the Administration stop catering to private companies and protect incarcerated people’s mail. Fill out the form below to send an email to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
