(In)Securus Technology: An Assault on Prisoner Rights is a short film (18 mins.) that chronicles the fight for in-person jail visits in Travis County, Texas and connects the dots between private, for-profit interests and incarceration.
For nearly two years, Grassroots Leadership, alongside our community allies, waged a powerful campaign led by those who have experienced video jail visits first-hand and not only brought in-person visits back to Travis County, but also passed state legislation that will prevent other counties from replacing in-person visits with video chats.
The film was produced by Austin-based filmmaker Matthew Gossage for Grassroots Leadership. Executive producers are Lauren Johnson and Kymberlie Quong Charles.
