In Episode #2 of Deconstructing Dallas' "Where Do We Go From Here?" series, Shawn and Ryan welcome Bishop Omar Jahwar - Pastor, community leader, founder of Urban Specialists. From negotiating peace treaties with gang leaders to his work in criminal justice reform and his many experiences of grieving with families who have lost loved ones to senseless violence, Bishop Omar is awake and involved. He speaks on viewing the horrific murders of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, his involvement in the recent protests and also who, how and why people are protesting now. He also weighs in on DPD Chief Renee Hall and how the department has handled the protests. Bishop Omar also answers questions on being friends with and finding common ground with people on far sides of the political spectrum - both left and right.
