Amanda Weber was working for a nonprofit agency in Washington, D.C., several years ago. She was charged with learning all she could about homelessness in the city. Too young and naive to be afraid of the challenge, she decided to start a choir for homeless women. That experience changed everything. Now living in the Twin Cities, she is the director of Voices of Hope, a choir at the Minnesota Correctional Facility, a women's prison in Shakopee. She shares insights on the arts and social justice, and a personal playlist, too.
