Humera is a second-generation settler of South Asian origin. As a Staff Lawyer, Humera advocates for gender justice through legal cases and law reform efforts. Humera holds a law degree from McGill University. After law school, she clerked for the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. Before joining West Coast LEAF, Humera practiced constitutional, administrative, and human rights law, and worked in civilian oversight of policing. She has also worked on human rights initiatives and published articles on criminal law reform, racial profiling, and systemic discrimination, and on the rights of women, religious minorities, and refugees. Humera is inspired by the resilience of survivors of colonialism. Love of the mountains, ocean, and rainforest stirred her to move from Ontario to BC, and for this she is grateful to the Indigenous peoples who have cared for these lands.
