Don’t know how to do this kind of ask - any amount will help cover our trip, hotel and transportation. Thank you for your support.
My name is Patricia Okoumou, a national symbolic figure who courageously scaled the Statue of Liberty to protest against Donald J. Trump’s Zero-tolerance immigration policy. I am sharing the attached video to raise funds for my trip to the southern borders for our Valentine's Day Action. In this long journey, I will be delivering your postcards to the innocent human beings that the Trump Administration has locked in cages for political gains. Donate Now!
Send a Valentine’s Day/Dia Del Amor Y La Amistad postcard to show some love to migrant children!
On July 4, 2018 Patricia Okoumou scaled the base of the Statue of Liberty to protest the U.S. federal government's policy of ripping migrant children from their families and locking them in detention centers.
Stephen Figurasmith wrote this song about Patricia to empower the youngest among us to follow her example and become advocates for human rights and figuratively climb as high as they can climb in the pursuit of social justice.
Throughout Mexico and Central America, Valentine's Day is referred to - as the day of #amorYamistad (love & friendship).
Please spread the word on social media using our hashtags #WeDoCare, #ReturnTheChildren and #Liberty4Patricia.
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.
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.
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
