JJ’s afternoon tea with the Mayor

Last Thursday, JJ along with some colleagues and her team leaders went to the Wellington City Council to enjoy afternoon tea with Mayor Justin Lester following her widespread recognition after her stand against racism.

The invite came after the incident involving a racist passenger was bought to the Mayors attention by one of his staff members which in part is how the news of JJ’s actions has gained global attention. With all major news outlets in New Zealand reporting on the story of JJ’s stand against racism and Newspapers as far as India even picking up on the story.

JJ is now the proud recipient of the Absolutely Positively Wellingtonian award. Below is the citation to go along with the award as well as some photos from her afternoon tea with the Mayor.
