RTA helps people in prison develop critical life skills through the arts, modeling an approach to the justice system based on human dignity rather than punishment. RTA’s ongoing success is proof that restorative, cost effective programming works. Less than 5% of RTA members return to prison, compared to the national recidivism rate of 60%.
