About the Speaker

In 2021, Huda ventured into the political arena as a federal candidate for the New Democratic Party in the national election. Contesting in a traditionally Liberal stronghold, she significantly impacted her first political run, garnering over 11,000 votes, which accounted for more than 19% of the total vote share. Passionate about equity, particularly for women and racialized individuals, Huda inspires others to seek office and make a difference. Her journey from intelligence to politics, underpinned by her dedication to challenging institutional racism and advocating for equitable representation in national security, positions her as a trailblazer and a voice for positive change in both the public and political spheres.
