Welcome. I am married to a former prisoner in Oregon, and this is a blog where I write about issues relevant to Oregon prisons.
CenturyLink Communication Switch
In June 2020, Oregon Dept of Corrections (ODOC) switched communication providers, which has caused a number of problems. The following posts are related to this:
- Call to Action: Contact Oregon Legislators
- Guide to CenturyLink Switch for Oregon Prison Families
- All the Problems With the Oregon Prison CenturyLink Switch
- Oregon Prisons Are Removing Instant Messaging for Families
Please sign+share the petition on change.org to ODOC with 10 do-able changes that would greatly improve the situation.
I also recommend the recent StreetRoots article, New CenturyLink contract adds communication barriers for Oregon prisoners.
