Toledoans for Prison Awareness

Toledoans for Prison Awareness is a coalition of groups and individuals united by a common goal: to bring the human and institutional crisis of the prisons out of the shadows and into the foreground of policy debate, public awareness, and community ministry.

What we do: TPA facilitates initiatives pursued by coalition participants to build a concerned constituency and to promote co-sponsored events.

Before there can be reform, there has to be awareness. And awareness requires education.
