Extending an FBI national media campaign to fight hate crimes, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson proclaimed October 3 as "FBI Dallas Hate Crimes Awareness Day." Wrap ads on DART buses and trains will help spread the word, and newly painted murals in two Dallas communities aim to help, too.
"Through this proclamation, we are acknowledging that hate is real. But so is love," Mayor Johnson said.
