James Hacking

When three area Muslims were called recently by the FBI for an “informal
interview,” the men arrived accompanied by attorney James Hacking. As head
of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, St. Louis Chapter, Hacking
lends not only his time but also his legal services to the city’s estimated
65,000 Muslim residents. “We do a lot of interfaith stuff,” says Hacking,
whose local chapter has roughly 350 members. “We work with Muslims who’ve
been discriminated against. We work with the media to give an accurate
portrayal of Islam and we try to educate the general public that we’re not
all a bunch of terrorists.”
