NBC 5 continues to host conversations about what we are seeing unfold in the country following the outcry for change after the death of George Floyd. NBC 5 Anchor Vince Sims talks to the founders of Stand Together and Urban Specialist about their event ‘Heal America’ and how they are helping bring the community together.
Hosted by Bishop Omar Jahwar and featuring Stephen Jackson, Deion Sanders, and more, the event offered a wide-ranging conversation on race, citizenship, and humanity.
Last night, an event hosted by @theurbanspecialists and powered by @standtogether, brought a diverse group of local and national leaders (law enforcement, business executives, athletes, celebrities, faith leaders, civil rights advocates) to have an open discussion on the difficult issues America is grappling in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, from calls to defund the police to questions about how to combat institutional racism. “Can America really work for everyone, given our country’s history with racism and injustice? And if so, where do we go from here?” "Because it is the right thing to do!" When asked by Bishop Omar Jahwar why he has used his celebrity to be a difference maker. "It's just the right thing to do." - @mcuban
