Join us for what is bound to be a fantastic discussion of reflection and insight from the first Black female councillor in Tower Hamlets.

Cate Tuitt started out as an activist in the 1980s, campaigning to investigate racial discrimination and deaths in police custody. Cate became interested in law when she became a trustee at CAPA (Community Action Police Accountability). At the age of 16 she was the youngest trustee on the board. Witness to many racially motivated attacks and crimes, and noticing that the law did not always bring justice to these crimes, she was inspired to go into local politics, becoming the first female black councillor in Tower Hamlets in 1996.
