A proposed bill in California would give kids in juvenile facilities the right to internet access, and Facebook is throwing its support behind it.

"Many teens are placed in locations far from their homes and families, making availability of electronic communication to maintain supportive relationships even more important," Ann Blackwood, Facebook (FB, Tech30) policy head for western states, wrote in a letter supporting the bill.

She said computer literacy and the internet are important educational tools, as well as a means to communicate with family. Blackwood sent the letter on Friday to Assemblymember Mike Gipson, the Los Angeles Democrat who introduced the bill earlier this year. A copy of the letter was provided to CNNTech.
