Julie Begum

“One of the things about East London is that it is…a place where people from different parts of the country, but also different parts of the world, different parts of Europe, can come and just fit in much more easily.”

Julie Begum has lived in Tower Hamlets for her entire life. She is an activist and educator who has worked on local and national campaigns for over two decades. In the mid-1990s she helped set up a group to mobilise local women to defeat the British National Party.
