Communications Committee Chair – Julie Brown
Julie Brown relocated from Avondale to College Hill in 2005. A true community activist, she is an active member on multiple College Hill civic organization boards but particularly motivated by increasing pedestrian safety in the neighborhood. Julie began petitioning for speed bumps on her small residential street in 2014 but was initially denied. She did not let this stop her and after two years her tenacity paid off when her street was one of the last to receive speed bumps before the budget was completely cut in 2016. Julie is a member of grassroots College Hill Traffic and Pedestrian Safety group, a member of the MUSE Cincinnati Womens Choir focused on social justice activism and is an active member on several Racial Equality and Social Justice teams at her Research & Development job at Procter & Gamble. Her favorites quotes are “Each one, teach one” (African proverb) and “Be the kindness you wish to see in the world” (Ghandi).
