We just won a victory on the disciplinary charges against Jalil for teaching an authorized African-American History Course!

This is good news for Jalil, as the charges will be expunged, and he can proceed to have a family reunification visit with his mother and family, which was denied on May 10, 2018, the same day the Third Department Appellate Decision came down.

Jalil expresses special thanks to attorney Kathy Manley and would also like to thank all those who supported him while he was in the SHU. You can read the decision here!
