About this event

The Robina Institute is pleased to invite you to our next Robina In Conversation, "Women in Prison in Minnesota: Voices of Hope from Within Prison Walls," on Friday, June 9, 2017 from 1:30-4:00 p.m. in the Lloyd Ultan Recital Hall with a reception to follow from 4-5:00 p.m. in the first floor lobby.

At this In Conversation, we will discuss issues and challenges that are unique to the incarceration of women. The program will open with Amanda Weber, doctoral candidate at the University of Minnesota's School of Music, recounting her experiences leading a chorus of incarcerated women at Shakopee. We will then hear from a panel of formerly incarcerated women, who will discuss their experiences, successes, and challenges to reentry into society.

The program will conclude with a panel of professionals who will discuss some of the implications of and contributing factors to Minnesota’s growing population of incarcerated women. This panel will be moderated by Robina Institute Research Director, Dr. Ebony Ruhland, and include Assistant Professor Rebecca Shlafer, University of Minnesota, Department of Pediatrics; Dr. Jim Verhoye, Education Director, Minnesota Correctional Facility at Shakopee, Judge Bruce Peterson, 4th Judicial District, and Earl Conley, Workforce Specialist.
