In Their Own Kitchen

Statue of Liberty Climber and ‘In Their Own Kitchen’ filmmakers talk Lights for Liberty Vigils.

The Statue of Liberty climber Patricia Okoumou and “In Their Own  Kitchen” filmmakers, Joy Lau and Andrew Chow, stopped by PIX11 Friday  morning to discuss their activism and  Lights for Liberty Vigils  happening across the country and the world.

“These are hard times. Families are being ripped apart, homes are  being raided, Immigrant’s are afraid to go to hospitals. This is not how  we intend to live in this country. We are a country that is diverse and  we need to stick together and love one another,” Okoumou said.

Lights for Liberty will be holding  vigils nationwide at 7 p.m. on Friday.

According to the Lights for Liberty website, the vigils will “bring  thousands of people to locations worldwide as well as to concentration  camps across country, into the streets and into their own front yards,  to protest the inhumane conditions faced by migrants.”
