Mohammed is a senior organizer for Toronto’s Labour movement and active leader in Muslim community advocacy. A graduate of the University of Toronto, he has been involved with many of the campaigns that have promoted equity and pushed back against Islamophobia. His work with the York and Peel District School Boards helped shape a greater understanding of Islamophobia and deepened commitments to strive for greater equity. Mohammed’s commitment to strengthening democracy and inclusion led to hosting the first Iftar at Toronto City Council Chambers.
He also helped create the first fellowship for Muslim youth to deepen their commitment to public service by building bridges for access to working at Toronto City Hall. His work in politics and labour has been well recognized and he has played leading roles in many campaigns that protect public services and help get progressive city builders elected.
