The activist could face up to 18 months in a federal jail if the prosecution pursues full penalty associated with her charges. U.S. Attorney Berman has not indicated what course he will pursue should the case go in the government’s favor.

Patricia launched a petition prior to her hearing on August 3 calling for U.S. Attorney Berman to drop the charges. Since, the petition has garnered nearly five thousand signatures.

Our national government has ripped apart thousands of families and put young children in cages. As part of our basic right to protest outlined in the constitution, Therese Patricia Okoumou climbed Lady Liberty to raise awareness of this injustice, a pattern wrought against thousands of families over the course of America’s history. Sign the petition and let the U.S. attorney know we will not tolerate further injustice and we will not be silent about the harm our government is inflicting on children and families. DROP THE CHARGES TODAY!
