Christine Haddadd stands on the bridge over ERL Thornton Freeway and South Akard Street holding a sign protesting police brutality. She said six police cars had driven past her, and two of the officers driving had flipped her off while one waved at her. "I don't know what to do about any of this," she said. "This seemed like a good way to get a bunch of people's attention at once."

On Sunday, the City of Dallas imposed a 7 p.m. curfew on parts of the city in response to Friday and Saturday’s protests that ended in riots. However, demonstrators peacefully gathered in parts of the city, including for a vigil at Freedman’s Memorial Cemetery to mourn the loss of George Floyd and other black lives lost during encounters with the police.

The Mesquite Tri-East chapter of the National Advancement for the Association of Colored People also held a press conference in front of the Mesquite City Hall where president Henry Brown called for an end to knee and chokeholds by police when making arrests.
