(Correction: After meeting with The Frederick Leon Marcus Youth Cadet Program organizers, we understand that they are not about militarizing children, and any misconceptions that were formed about militarization as a result of our petition are incorrect).

The Sausalito City Council is considering funding The Frederick Leon Marcus Youth Cadet Program that would work with the Marin City school district. They say they are doing this as part of their resolution to "declare our commitment to Black Lives Matter and standing against racial injustice."

This petition, led by Black residents of Marin City, is to show the City Council that Marin City does not want or need police. 

Any police-affiliated program is a pipeline into police culture. This is the exact opposite of what the Black Lives Matter movement is asking for, which is defunding the police.

The Sausalito Police and the Marin County Sheriff have a history of promoting racial inequalities. They have not been protecting the Marin City - Sausalito youth. 

All of the funding should be redirected into the community's education, empowerment, and health and safety. 

Please join the City Council meeting on July 7th at 5:30pm to voice whatever concerns you may have about Sausalito-Marin City needs:
