Statement from President Hardin on the Columbus Division of Police's Reconsideration on Hijab Ban

[COLUMBUS, OH] The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Columbus City Council President Shannon G. Hardin: 

"Columbus’ Division of Police must reflect the people they serve. It is time to maximize the diversity in our police department and show respect for all faiths. I applaud Chief Quinlan for reconsidering the hijab ban and I hope Columbus police take steps to hire some of our 40,000 Somali friends and neighbors to join us in building safer neighborhoods.”
