Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. – Martin Luther King Jr.
Last week’s Dallas shooting was the deadliest single incident for U.S. law enforcement since September 11th’s terror attacks. Twelve Dallas Police officers were shot in the tragic attack, five of whom were killed. There have been more than 50 law enforcement officer deaths in 2016 one of whom was Officer Doug Barney of Utah.
Today, we stand with Dallas, and with our local law enforcement and the sacrifices they make to keep us safe. The Utah 1033 Foundation was established in 2011 with the purpose of honoring Utah’s fallen officers by providing immediate financial support to their families. We invite the community to show Dallas their support by rallying around Utah’s law enforcement officers and honoring Utah’s fallen.
Your support today goes directly to our Fallen Officer’s Fund, where it will be available to support the families of Utah’s fallen in the coming months and years.
“Now more than ever our officers need community support. The community support shown to my family had a positive impact on us and will never be forgotten. The Utah 1033 Foundation was among those who showed support by helping us bear the heavy weight of the financial responsibilities left behind.” – Shante Johnson, Utah 1033 Advisory Board member
