All leading up to the Big Game at 3 PM. Let’s come Together over the game of basketball…what unites us is greater than what divides us.

Why Pastors & Police? Why Faith & Law Enforcement?
The event’s headliner game is Pastors & Police (not Pastors vs. Police) to represent unity within the Dallas community. Dallas law enforcement, community and religious leaders play side by side to show that what unites us is greater than what divides us. The event also features a high school exhibition game which showcases talent of high school varsity players from around the metroplex. The beauty of this game is that these students have likely never met or played with or against each other. They come together in “unity” to play a sport that we all love – basketball. The high school game and the Big Game are coached by police officers.

High School Exhibition Game


Project Unity’s High School Exhibition Game is for rising students in 11th – 12th grades who play on their school’s varsity basketball teams. This exciting activity is part of our Together We Ball community event! High performing student athletes are pre-selected to play in the exhibition game. Students from around Dallas County are brought together as strangers to form a common bond and unite over the game of basketball. It’s a true example of coming together as a team for a common goal. What unites us… Everyone is invited out to see our talented youth play! For more information, please email info@projectunity.net.
