Making Contact


Leading up to the US Supreme Court hearing on Trump's travel ban, we'll hear about the orders impact on people from affected, Muslim-majority countries, and how advocacy groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations are responding. On this edition of Making Contact we begin with the story of a woman who was in flight to the US when President Trump signed his first travel ban. 

Nisrin Abdelrahman, Stanford PhD student in Anthropology; Zahar Billoo, civil rights attorney and executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, San Francisco Bay Area chapter.
