Jordan Thompson, Director of Black Lives Matter Nashua and Racial Justice Organizer for ACLU-NH, has taken the position that we should “abolish the police” and he is running unopposed for alderman for Nashua Ward 6.
Black Lives Matter Nashua founder Jordan Thompson told the 100 or so people gathered on Saturday that police reform isn’t possible. “We try to work with elected officials; we try to work with local police to bridge gaps, to find common ground, to do reform work. But the system can’t be reformed, and we’re not here asking to reform. We’re here asking for abolition.”
