Julie Mariama Sesay

Julie Mariama Sesay is the Freetown Programme Manager at AdvocAid, an organization that provides legal aid and support to detained and incarcerated women and girls in Sierra Leone. Working with some of Sierra Leone’s most vulnerable populations, she fights to make sure that no one is overlooked, and that they are offered opportunities to improve their lives when they are released. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Julie has been unafraid to put her own health at risk in order to serve others. She has engaged with police to secure the release of women who were detained for breaking lockdown orders to fetch clean water for their families, organized a life-saving donation of medical supplies to a correctional center where prisoners were diagnosed with COVID-19, and more.
