The city rallied together and provided unprecedented support to first-responders and the families affected. On the evening of Friday, July 7, 2017, the city of Dallas will unite through the Tribute 7/7 event to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the shootings, the resilience of the city and honor those who lost their lives.
