ATLANTA (AP) - Advocacy groups, law enforcement and religious leaders are meeting in Atlanta to discuss ways to build bonds between police and citizens.

Rev. Markel Hutchins said in a statement that the Saturday event was organized in response to high profile fatal shootings involving police in other cities. The event begins at noon in the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College.

The forum is expected to include a town hall on preventing negative encounters with law enforcement, the launch of a program meant to develop partnerships between law enforcement and religious organizations, and a march.

Organizers say representatives from the Georgia Sheriff’s Association, the Fraternal Order of Police, the NAACP and several other organizations are expected to participate.
