24HourDallas
SAFE. VIBRANT. DIVERSE.
What is 24HourDallas?
Created by the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, 24HourDallas is part think-tank and part "nighttime chamber of commerce." Our mission is to create a safe, vibrant and diverse nighttime culture for businesses, residents, and guests.
We invite your business, your non-profit organization, or you to volunteer.
Change is coming

As young professionals around the world increasingly move to urban centers, more than 35 international cities are looking at ways to boost the nighttime economy while staving off challenges and conflicts.
Most of these global initiatives are led by local government agencies.
A private-public initiative for Dallas
A private–public initiative for Dallas
Dallas' initiative, however, is a private sector-led coalition. It is designed to:
  • encourage collaboration,
  • incubate cultural activity,
  • champion sociable districts,
  • influence policy, and
  • inspire nighttime business development to the benefit of our city.
  • For 2020, our consortium of company, non-profit, and individual volunteers is focused on these eight action areas:
    Communication

    Help stop trafficking, relationship abuse
    The first two 24HourDallas programs we will administer come from our Safety Action Team. We will introduce a simple program for restaurants, bars, hotels, and other businesses.
    You will be able to provide a safe escape for those who are being trafficked for sex or labor and are passing through your place of business. You will also be able to assist customers who are enduring abusive relationship behavior in your place of business.
    We're just getting started

    By the end of 2020, our eight teams will develop additional programs, policy recommendations, and an innovative plan for Dallas' economy at night.
    Is your company interested in participating? Does our cause resonate with your company's objectives?
    Do you see a place for your non-profit organization? Can our mission be served by your mission?
    Does our just cause mirror your personal interest and skills?
    There is no financial expectation for companies and organizations to become 24HourDallas alliance members. There is no fee to volunteer.
    We only expect talent, innovation, and a common-ground approach to collaboration.
