Julia Whaipooti - Justice Issue
John Mohi will introduce Julia Whaipooti a Wellington social justice warrior who wants to reshape the ‘pale, male, stale’ world of law. Julia channels this passion in her role as the chair of JustSpeak. She sees many of the issues in our criminal justice system as a reflection of social justice failures in broader society and believes young people deserve a voice in the criminal justice conversation and strives to make those voices heard. Julia has been involved in the Community Law movement for 7 years as a volunteer, advocate, lawyer and up until most recently as the Kaitakawaenga/National Maori Coordinator at the Community Law Centres of Aotearoa.
