NCPCF presented a program “Islam and Pre-crime Incarceration” at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, on Wednesday.  Kathy Manley, NCPCF legal director and Mariam Abu-Ali, director of the Prisoner and Family Committee spoke. They were joined by Ikraan Abdurahman, whose brother incarcerated for what can best be described as  “thought crime”.
Julie Fischer of the Northeast Iowa Peace & Justice Center had this to say about the presentation:

“Imagine dogs locked in small cells, completely cut off from any fellow dog contact, allowed only 1 hour of exercise in 23 hours. What would we do? We’d shut the place down. But when we keep people this way, we don’t even hear about them.”
