700,000 men and women are released from prison every year in the United States. Education, employment, family and community connections are critical. For many, RTA is the first step – a glimpse into the possibility of a better life.
How do we use your donations?
RTA currently operates in 5 prisons spread over 3 counties in New York State. Your contribution helps pay for curriculum development, volunteer training, books, art supplies and transportation to remote prisons. Donations allow us to film performances in prison and mail DVDs to prisoner families.
RTA is made possible through support from such generous donors as The Kalliopeia Foundation, the EILEEN FISHER company, Bloomberg Foundation, Metro Presbytery Partnership Group, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, Council for Witness to Society and the World, The Leon Lowenstein Foundation and numerous other church groups and individual supporters.
