WATER applauds Joyce Ride on the occasion of her 90th birthday, which she celebrated with style in Washington, DC. She was in Washington for the awarding of the Medal of Freedom to her late daughter, the astronaut Sally Ride.
Joyce’s passion for justice knows no bounds. She is active in Friends Outside, a group that helps women in prison. She has pushed the Presbyterian Church toward greater inclusion of LGBTIQ people. She stands up and is counted on for many struggles. Her marvelous humor and her stalwart support make her a WATER favorite.
Ad multos annos, Joyce Ride!
