Support Those Impacted by Dallas Shooting Tragedy
|On behalf of the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, our hearts and prayers go out to the Dallas and DART police officers, their families, and to all others that have been negatively impacted by the Dallas shootings that took place on July 7th. We are grateful for all the law enforcement officers and other first responders that put everything on the line to save lives, and for the community leaders that have made difficult decisions and kept us informed throughout this ordeal. It is because of them, and many others from all segments of the community, that Dallas will emerge from this a more resilient city.
