About RED CARAVAN Reads:
The RED CARAVAN Reads series promotes and advocates for a worthy non-profit organization that is thematically linked to their current production. By curating readings and events in various stages of development, they are giving space, promotion, and support to established and emerging artists from NYC’s theatrical community in order to raise both funds and awareness for the real issues of the community at large.
RED CARAVAN's inaugural series benefits New Alternatives, a center for LGBT homeless youth in NYC. An almost entirely volunteer-based grassroots non-profit, this organization works to increase the self-sufficiency of LGBT homeless youth by providing case management, education services, life-skills training, community-building activities, and a meal every Sunday. RED CARAVAN is hoping to raise resources and awareness for this organization, particularly as they are in danger of losing the space in which they run their center this June.
