600,000 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 New York State counties. Your contribution helps pay for curriculum development, facilitator training, books, art supplies, sets, costumes and props for productions and transportation to remote prisons. Donations allow us to film performances in prison and mail DVDs to prisoners’ families.
RTA is made possible through support from such generous donors as The Kalliopeia Foundation, The Tow Foundation, The Speranza Foundation, EILEEN FISHER, Puffin Foundation and numerous individual supporters.
