With COVID-19 and the financial crisis looming over our city, too many New Yorkers are teetering on the edge of disaster. Our neighbors are struggling to pay their bills, put food on their tables, afford their medications, access a quality education, and make rent.
This is our moment to build a city that works for everyone. When elected to City Council, Julie will champion a fair and just recovery. Julie will put working families first and build coalitions to fight for us all.
In 1998, following the South Korean Financial Crisis, Julie and her family immigrated to New York in search of a new beginning. At an early age, she recognized that even in the land of opportunity children did not have equal access to education or necessary resources. From the generous collective care of the local community and her parents' sacrifice, Julie quickly learned the importance of solidarity, giving back, and community organizing.
Witnessing the failures of unchecked capitalism first-hand, Julie has devoted her life to serving vulnerable communities. As a small business advocate and innovative changemaker, Julie is dedicated to finding new ways to reimagine how we build the social fabrics of our communities by prioritizing sustainability, inclusivity, safety, kindness, and equity for all people.
With an unwavering heart for public service, Julie serves as a board member of Queens Community Board 2, Community Capacity Development (CCD): 696 Build Queensbridge (Advisory Board), Queens Together (Advisory Board), and the Korean-American Association of Greater NY (KAAGNY Executive Board). Julie also served on the Queens Borough President’s Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census as the founder of the Technology Action Group. Julie also volunteers locally with Astoria, Sunnyside/Woodside, and Long Island City Mutual Aids.
Julie has spent the last seven years in the Technology Sector as a consultant with expertise in Digital Strategy, Change Management, and Human Centered Design transforming government agencies as well as businesses globally.
Julie will be a forceful, collaborative advocate for Western Queens in the City Council. She will continue fighting for our progressive values and will stand up to powerful interests as well as a City Hall bureaucracy. When elected, Julie will be the first Korean-American Councilmember and one of the few Councilmembers who are naturalized citizens.
Julie is committed to bringing progressive solutions that are focused on protecting and alleviating the burdens of the most vulnerable communities.
