Members of the Sandwich Police Department and community members supportive of racial justice and Black Lives Matter met recently in a desire to build trust and foster a relationship that will allow them to work together in the future. They were successful in creating a climate of safety and in laying the groundwork for continuing discussions. The conversation was facilitated by Sandwich Stands.

Sandwich Stands is a community organization with the following mission statement: Sandwich residents want a safe, free and productive life in our community. Sandwich Stands is building a climate of civic conversation that welcomes and respects all viewpoints. We want to create connection, increase trust, promote goodwill, and strengthen community bonds.
