Therese Patricia Okoumou…an immigrant, putting her body on the line for other immigrants, literally grasping the hem of Lady Liberty’s garment on the 4th of July. This will be iconic. #TheresePatriciaOkoumou (


Who is Therese Patricia Okoumou, the woman who tried to scale the Statue of Liberty to protest immigration policy?

She joined the group Rise and Resist, which unfurled an “Abolish ICE” banner at the base of the statue on Wednesday, a few months ago and has been taking part in about one protest a week with the group, according to member Jay Walker.

The group disavowed her lawbreaking stunt on their social media posts, but they expressed concern for her well-being.


Her name is #TheresaPatriciaOkoumou.
