Since 2008, Khurrum Wahid has sat on the National Security Committee for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL). The NACDL’s mission is to ensure justice and due process for persons accused of crime or other misconduct. The NACDL recognizes that under the banner of the “war on terrorism,” America’s fundamental constitutional protections have been under unprecedented attack. Since the tragedy of 9/11, the government has engaged in unparalleled assaults on a range of constitutional rights, including the right to due process and the right to privacy.
Khurrum Wahid aids the NACDL in resisting this trend on both on a systemic and case-by-case basis to expose and combat the ongoing incursions into our civil rights in the name of national security.
