CAIR Chicago’s staff attorney, Kevin Vodak, led a “Know Your Rights” presentation at the Muslim Community Center (MCC) this Tuesday. The presentation sought to educate Muslims on the rights they may exercise when interacting with the police. According to Vodak, the goal of this event was to “convey the constitutional rights of the Muslim community in order to combat oppression.” Vodak was joined by CAIR-Chicago board member Yaser Tabbara as well as attorney Khalil Khalil, both from the law firm Zarzour, Khalil & Tabbara, LLC. The lawyers also discussed immigration issues and answered the attendees’ many legal questions.
