Maiden (2019)
You don’t have to be a feminist or a sailor to appreciate this true story of the first all-female crew to enter the “Whitbread Round the World Race.”  In 1989 Tracy Edwards, the feisty, single-minded, 27-year old skipper and navigator of the newly refurbished “Maiden,” upset what had been the yachting world’s most notorious “boys club.”  She assembled an international crew and led them on a grueling, nine-month-long, 33,000 nautical mile voyage through some of the most treacherous seas known to man (or woman). Archival footage is skillfully intertwined with present day, one-on-one interviews with Tracy and her indomitable crew. Viewers experience the reality of surviving life-threatening fifty-foot waves, the misogyny of the press, and the daily challenges of 279 days sharing tight quarters with a bunch of strong women. “Taut” “gripping,” “riveting,” “stunning,” and “moving” are just a few of the words reviewers’ use to describe this award-winning documentary.  The film’s heart-pumping finale is worth the price of admission. To quote Elinore: “I cannot wait to watch it again!” Rotten Tomatoes: 98%. Running time: 97 minutes.

Presbyterians for Just Immigration

Looking for information about the recent Supreme Court decision to not enjoin the government's rule that asylum seekers must apply for asylum in another country (i.e. Guatemala, Mexico) they pass through before arriving at the southern border of the United States - 3rd country rule asylum ban? CLINIC has provided a brief summary.

 

First Presbyterian Church in Canton, Mississippi, is part of the Mississippi workplace raid response. The Office of Immigration Issues created a response guide that includes how you can help support the response and prepare for one in your community before it happens.
