Julia has been a member of the Liberal Democrats since 2013 and was elected as a Councillor for the first time in May 2018. Julia was born in East London, but also grew up in Nigeria as well as in Queens Road, Peckham before moving to Kennington.

Julia is passionate about stopping Brexit, as well as tackling the injustices and inequality that is so prevalent in London. She is a strong anti-knife crime campaigner, supporting Siobhan Benita’s campaign to deliver a public health approach to knife crime.

She is unwavering in her promotion of greater diversity and inclusion in politics, representing the often forgotten groups and changing the narrative around black women in politics -across all political divides.

As a Councillor, Julia is the Lib Dem Group Crime, Communities and Equalities Spokesperson – her priorities are addressing and tackling the stark inequality between the two sides of the borough, the rise in youth violence, knife crime and hate crime, particularly in London.
