Let’s See Action: With schools cutting arts programs, it’s time to move from feeling helpless to stepping up as the adults in the room to make opportunities for the next generations. I’ve always known XRT listeners to be generous with their time, talent and treasure. Please join me in this effort to make a difference. This is a call to action. [Get Involved]
