A panel of community leaders will lead a discussion on systemic injustices in Minneapolis, Minn., on Wednesday as a part of the “Heal America Tour”, a series of events designed to spark productive dialogues on inequality in America. The event, hosted by Bishop Omar Jahwar in partnership with Stand Together, will take place just a few miles from the location where George Floyd was killed while in Minneapolis police custody.
Last week, I was part of a movement that was so powerful that it shifted my thought process. I was invited by @bishopomarjahwar and @standtogetherfoundation @standtogether to participate in singing my song “Freedom” on this platform. This was more than just singing.. this was an serious moment for me that really brought it home to my purpose again.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had some interesting things to say about the "Defund the Police" movement going on across the country. Cuban took part in a conversation at an event in Dallas called Heal America: A Course Correction Conversation on Race, Citizenship and Humanity, which was hosted by Stand Together and Urban Specialist. He was one of the many guests that talked about the issues going on in the country, including police brutality. Cuban said he's not a fan of defunding the police but has an idea of what can be done.
