The Angel Band Project
The Angel Band Project’s mission is to the use the power of music to provide healing, raise awareness, and promote positive social change for survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence. The Angel Band Project has been a pioneer in bringing life- affirming music therapy to survivors in crisis. In 2013, we developed and launched the country’s first music therapy program specifically designed to help survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence. Today, we operate programs in St. Louis, New York, and Seattle and in 2024 will pilot workshops in five more cities. The values center on 1) Believing the victims; 2) Acting on their behalf; 3) Healing through music – We believe that music can provide healing and empower those who have experienced rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, and abuse.
