NATIONWIDE – We couldn’t make this up, if we wanted to and we wouldn’t even try. More than 600 facilities in the US have implementation video visitation in prisons. According to Prison Policy Initiative’s data, a large number of correctional facilities are reducing or eliminating in-person visits. Each video visit is $12.99 for 20 minutes and is managed by Securus. With more than 2.3 million people in 1,719 state prisons, 102 federal prisons, 942 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,283 local jails, and 79 Indian Country jails, not to mention the military and detention centers – prisons-for-profit is where the big money lies.

NEIGBORHOOD - In Summer 2016, the #LetUsBreathe Collective launched Freedom Square, a 41-day overnight occupation, protest encampment, and block party opposing Homan Square, the CPD 'black site' where thousands of Chicagoans have been illegally detained and tortured.
