Death of Samoa Fa'afafine Foundation President and President So'oalo To'oto'oali'i Roger Stanley. So' oalo's work with the club was unsalaried and she also worked full time at the Samoa Tourism Authority. PSGDN (Pacific Sexual and Gender Diversity Network) writes: "Mama Roger, as she was lovingly called in the PSGDN community, was one of the PSGDN's citadels.
On the PSGDN board she was the seated representative of the Samoa Faafafine Association at the moment of her premature death. During her term of office, she was a powerful supporter of the PSGDN's term of office. Besides the many great efforts she has made within the Samoan Faafafine Association, one of her greatest achievements has been to make the Samoan Prime Minister one of her idol.
"Roger was never afraid of a female warrior, and she used that as her strong point to stand up for Fa'afafine in Samoa.

American Samoa's FEMA costs increased to 90% for Cyclone Gita | American Samoa
Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Aumua Amata is delighted to announce that a concerted effort between Governor Lolo and her American Samoa and Washington, D.C. counterparts has led President Trump's government to further review the needs of American Samoa in relation to the effects of Cyclone Gita. Yesterday evening, the president mercifully changed the FEMA emergency response for American Samoa by raising the federal contribution by 20% to a 90-10 chip from a 75-25 chip, which may have reduced the ASG contribution by tens of tens of thousands or more.
Aumua Amata in the attached note to President Trump on March 1 made the following motion to raise the federal game in favor of Governor Lolo's motion: In recent month, Aumua Amata's and Governor Lolo's lawyers in DC have worked with government agents to inform White House and administrative staff about the uniquely commercial conditions and needs of Samoa during Cyclone Gita's recovering processes and to remind them of the high level of US -Samoans' high level of civilian duty and unshakable allegiance.
The change is that the government of Samoa only needs to make a 10% contribution to obtain federal funding of 25%. "I' d also like to thank Governor Lolo and his crew for their untiring work after Cyclone Gita and the White House and FEMA White House and FEMA law enforcement officials, especially for their continuing response to this and other important questions faced by US Samoa," said Congresswoman Aumua Amata.
President Donald J. Trump published a Major Disaster Statement for the Territory of American Samoa on March 2, 2018, which triggered the freeing of federal funding to help individuals and local populations recuperate from the tropic gita that took place from February 7-12, 2018.
