Wade Henderson, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference and the Joseph L. Rauh, Jr. Chair of Public Interest Law, is quoted in several news outlets on excessive prison phone call rates.

It can cost 10 times more to call anyone from prison than it does to call Singapore from a cellphone, said Wade Henderson. A 15-minute collect call from prison typically costs $10 to $17 - rates that garnered $152 million in revenue for prisons in 2011. "These are predatory rates for a literally captive audience,” he said.
