Organizers say Nashua conversation events help community, police find common ground

A community-led program, Nashua Community Conversations on Race and Justice, has held numerous forums on policing and racial justice for more than five years. Racial justice activists say the effort, featuring breakout groups where residents or students talk to police officers and both sides share their perspectives, have significantly improved police-community relations. But the city's overwhelmingly white police force continues to arrest people of color at disproportionately high rates, showing that "perceptions have changed more than arrest statistics."
