Two groups on opposite sides are coming together, uniting for peace in the wake of the police ambush.
Some Black Lives Matter supporters and their counter protesters say they are now one in Dallas.
 

But after these Black Lives Matter supporters and their counter protesters spent a few minutes together, they realized they’re bonded by peace. Britny Morrison with Black Lives Matter states, “We all go through the same things. There’s no reason to hate each other when we can all just uplift each other.”

The two sides first met a few days ago during a protest near Northpark center. But since joining in that first prayer they now want to take the showing of unity a step further.

T.J Duncan with Back the Blue says, “We’re Texans, that’s it. We ain’t colored, we ain’t got nothing. We’re Dallas, we’re Texas and we’re proud.”
 

The “Lives Matter Movement” now wants to take their message across the country to cities like Baton Rouge and Minneapolis. The scenes of the most recent controversial police involved shootings.


Det. Allen Webb with the Dallas Police, “I think it’s a great start. Something’s gotta happen to fix our country. I think it’s an incredible thing to do. I don’t know how y’all did it? I have no idea.”

Britny Morrison with Black Lives Matter also states, “We have to kill that fear and tear down those walls.” And find common ground the groups says. Focus on life, love and change.


Jade Dudley with Black Lives Matter says, “Now we’re going to turn around and plant that seed and let it bloom! It’s going to bloom.”
 
The group is fundraising and plans to head to their first stop, Baton Rouge Friday morning.
