Dallas remains in shell shock days after lone sniper Micah Johnson opened fire at a Black Lives Matter rally downtown, killing five police and transit officers, while injuring another seven officers in addition to two protest attendees. We are all looking for something, anything, to help heal our believed city.

Joyce Way in Preston Hollow is doing its part by adorning every house with a blue ribbon, part of a city-wide campaign to show support for our Dallas Police Department as they patrol our streets. The simple blue ribbons bring a sign of peace to one of the darkest moments in our city’s history.

For those looking to contribute, the Friends of the Dallas Police working with the Dallas Foundation have created a fund  specifically to help the families of the fallen officers and the injured officers.
