Patricia Okoumou P. O. Box 10060, Staten Island, NY 10301

Ma Lily

     I've started my 200 hours of community service. As  you know, my journey to Africa was difficult. It started with a denial  entry to the Republic of Congo, my own native country. Friends, just as  yourself, continued  to press on and hard for a smooth and safe journey onto my mother's  arms.

    I was able to bury Maman Lily with a whole army of friends and supporters  behind me. I could have emailed you while in Brazzaville, but there were  power outage and Wi-Fi connection.

     Maman  Lily Elizabeth Makouela Okoumou had signaled her departure from this  earth with lightning and thunderstorm on Mother's Day (Sunday March 31,  2019) when  she took her last breath. She wants us to remember and celebrate this  moment as she transitions from the flesh to the spiritual realm of  power. The second lightning we heard and saw happened in the midst of a  family argument the day before her burial on Thursday  April 04, 2019.

    She was buried on Friday April 05, 2019. I had a flight scheduled for Saturday April 06, 2019.

     My  mom has expressed her gratitude from the heavens in many ways. This was  remarkable when the family learned after the cemetery that my flight  had changed from  Saturday April 06, 2019 (economy class) to Friday April 05, 2019  (business class). The message was simple, "This operation is mission  accomplished. Thank you for your tenacity. Travel in peace and be  blessed. I will always be present."

    I'd  like to think that my mom passed away to embark on a special journey.  The mission is to figure out what happened to my two nephews who passed  away on Wednesday  March 13, 2019.

    Hopefully, with my new super power invested in me from Ma Lily, I can do greater things.

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!
