How Do I Move Forward?


I am asking moms and dads to hit the streets, march with empty strollers as symbolism of the missing children. Create signs and posters that reads: #ReturnTheChildren.

Join Me In Peaceful Protest!


I, Patricia Okoumou, scaled the Statue of Liberty in the name of justice because this callous administration is in violation of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Donation

Lady Liberty Climber


"When I climbed the Statue of Liberty on July 04, 2018, I wanted to express the urgency of stopping our government’s reprehensible and inhumane treatment of migrant children. I was fearless, bold and brave in the name of justice. I wanted no one to forget that children have been forced into cages and that we must do everything we can to stop the imprisonment of children. Even today many of these children are still in cages. Tender-aged children have been ripped away from nursing mothers. Toddlers are being asked to testify in court. Parents are torn apart with grief and very little has been done to reunite these families. As a matter of facts, Donald J. Trump’s profiteers, his cronies and minions are making billions of dollars on these concentration camps. On September 18th, FEMA chief Brock Long faced an investigation for violating ethics rules. Steve Benen from The MaddowBlog broke this story out, as reported by the Wall Street Journal." @pokoumou

A national symbolic figure who scaled the Statue of Liberty to protest against Donald John Trump’s Zero-tolerance immigration policy is raising funds for my work as an activist and the trouble the government has put me through: home confinement, electronic ankle monitor, five years probation plus 200 hours of community service, including violation of my rights to freely assembled under our constitution. My action on 07/04/18 is supported by the Declaration of Independence. Donate Now!

I  am thankful to my friends and supporters who showed up at sentencing, to those  who were with me in spirit, to those who updated each other on my  sentence and to you for making your financial contribution towards my work today.

Federal Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein has  rebuked my activism and bravery on behalf of migrant babies. Someone please read the Declaration of Independence to Judge Gorenstein. Ask him why is he embarrassed to talk about The “migrant” Children in cages. Ask Judge Gorenstein if he doesn’t think that Donald John Trump’s   national security declaration is a stunt. Stop being cynical, man! 

Trump should be wearing  shackles as the government had me on ankle electronic monitor for  violating the conditions of my bail. Trump has  ignored court orders to  reunite the Central American families. He has lied under oath of  office; yet, him and his vile administration get a slap on the wrist  while I get five years of probation, plus 200 hours of community  service. The  moral compass of our governmental institutions is bankrupt.

The  court had overwhelmed me with the job search that I was extremely  exhausted. Nevertheless, #wepersisted and I was able to land a job with  Salvage Art Institute. God sent Ms. Elkita Krajewska, the right person  to the rescue.

Meanwhile, probation is being incompetent unable to  set conditions that fit the crime (petty crime). They have imposed  full-time employment when the court is contented with my part-time  position as Site Coordinator & Community Liaison for  Salvage Art Institute.

Many people are saying that I've already served my community by climbing the Statue of  Liberty and attending numerous social justice events since Independence  Day.

I  am thankful that I am not in jail. I am happy the shackles have  come off (no home confinement and stupid rules), but five years of  probation is too excessive!

The feds call today (03/22/19) to schedule an  appointment for a home visit on Monday. They thought sitting down  comfortably is ideal to get acquainted with me. I am not having any of  that pep talk in my own home, knowing that the police can place me on a  choke-hold without mercy and still get away with murdering a black immigrant woman. We do have a history of police murdering black people without suffering the consequences for their violence.

I  am looking forward to the 200 community service. It suits me perfectly  as I love helping others and I have already done tons of community  services; unfortunately, my activism is being silenced. Let's hope that probation does not ask me to clean some toilets.

I'm raising money for support of my activist work that the Trump's Department of Justice wants to shut down by forcing me to be "employed". Why do white men always have something to say about women and black women in particular? What do they care about food that lands on my table? They don't feed me. I exist by the grace of God and the people who believe in my activism's voice for the voiceless.

Follow me please and ask friends and family members to do the same. Stay up-to-date on what's next with my work and our collective fight for justice.
