Families of Oregon Prisoners Fighting State and CenturyLink Over Access [telecom]

The Oregon Department of Corrections recently changed their
correctional communication systems vendor from Telmate to
CenturyLink. This change is happening at a time when family and
friends are not allowed to visit adults in custody due to COVID-19
distancing restrictions.

The new system has technical limitations that are causing frustration
for attorneys, family and friends who want to communicate with
prisoners. In response, a family member started a petition asking the
DOC to make ten improvements to the new system.
