Special Screening: Migrant Women Rise with Deaconess Joyous Prim

April 15, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Beacon United Methodist Church’s Crossroads Vespers service on April 15 at 1 p.m. for a special screening of “Migrant Women Rise: Stories of Red-Tagged Overseas Filipino Workers.”

They will be joined by the producer of the film Deaconess Joyous Prim, a United Methodist Missionary serving as a welfare case officer with migrant workers in Hong Kong and convener of the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines-Hong Kong. The church will also host a discussion with local organizers and Deaconess Joyous after the film.


Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, overseas Filipino workers in Hong Kong risk their lives and reputations as they speak out against the anti-people policies of the Philippine government. The documentary follows two migrant leaders who are victims of red-tagging under the Duterte Administration as they defend the rights of their fellow migrants while navigating the challenges of life far from home.
