Speakers Bureau Speaker and journalism student
Jules was born and raised in Kitsilano, but has spent most of her adult lie in the DTES. Jules is no stranger to activism. She's a support worker for SWUAV (Sex Workers United Against Violence) and is involved with the B.C. Association for People on Methadone and the B.C. Centre on Substance Use. Jules is a co-author of Research 101 Ethics Manifesto. Jules has been a Megaphone vendor since 2003 and joined Megaphone's Speakers Bureau in 2019. " Jules feels at home in the DTES, saying there is no other community like it. And she has a message for those outside the DTES who are dismissive of its residents and the formidable challenges they face. "Stop acting like it's not their problem. It is their problem. The two most pressing issues are the lack of affordable housing and "killer drugs""
