The Voices of Hope is a women’s prison choir at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, MN. The choir was founded in October 2015 by Amanda Weber and rehearses weekly at the prison.
MISSION: The Voices of Hope is a women’s prison choir that fosters individual growth and bridges unlikely communities through song.
HOPES: We recognize that the Voices of Hope has a dual calling to serve communities both inside and outside of the prison:
- BRINGING HOPE TO MCF-SHAKOPEE
The Voices of Hope provides a safe and sober activity which empowers women to find their voice, build connections in a diverse setting, and bring a positive message of hope and healing to the MCF-Shakopee community.
- BRINGING HOPE OUTSIDE PRISON WALLS
The Voices of Hope views singing as a powerful tool of restorative justice, seeking to transform perspectives of incarceration and build bridges of healing within the wider community through collaboration and reflection.
