Legal Department Update

Under threat of a CAIR-Philadelphia lawsuit, CAIR has successfully persuaded an area prison to offer halal meals to its Muslim inmates. Ryan Tack-Hooper, our Staff Attorney, has made two visits to the prison to meet with Muslim prisoners about this issue. Our Legal Department is continuing to monitor the implementation of the halal meal program carefully. Once completed, we hope that announcement of the change will lead to changes in other prison facilities across the state, enabling Muslim inmates the ability to eat healthy halal meals during their period of incarceration. We will keep our readers up-to-date on this story.
