Forum in response to anti-gay hate crime in Northeast Dallas postponed until Thursday

A joint forum in response to last week’s anti-gay hate crime in Northeast Dallas was postponed Monday night because of a power outage resulting from widespread thunderstorms.

United Black Ellument, DFW Pride Movement and Resource Center Dallas are hosting the meeting, which has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, March 22, DFW Pride Movement Executive Director Derrick Spillman said.

Speakers in attendance will still be from the Urban League of Greater Dallas Young Professionals, Living Faith Covenant Church, the NAACP and the Dallas Police Department, focusing on “a community response to violence in the African-American community and the protection needed to prevent attacks,” Spillman wrote in an email.

The forum will be at the United Black Ellument Office, at 3116 Commerce St. Suite C, Dallas, Texas 75226.
