Help Us Get Armed Police Out of Schools

In alliance with Movement4BlackLives, SURJ Marin is actively working to remove police officers known as “school resource officers” (SRO’s) from schools throughout the county. This is a chapter-wide campaign, and we are encouraging everyone involved with SURJ Marin to participate in our many activities designed to achieve this goal. The campaign focuses on the need for community-based solutions to safety, including bringing more mental health professionals and restorative justice programs into school communities to provide the support  that SRO’s are poorly trained to offer.

White students in Marin are rarely targeted by SRO’s, and thus white families tend to see SRO’s as a benign presence in the county.  By contrast, research shows that SRO’s in schools lead to the criminalization of BIPOC students, directly contribute to the school-to-prison pipeline, and negatively impact the learning opportunities and capacities of BIPOC youth. SRO’s do not make schools safer however.  No SRO has ever prevented a school shooting. And local BIPOC youth have made it clear that, for them, having police in schools is oppressive and harmful. The SURJ Marin campaign is part of a larger coalition that includes M4BL, the Marin Antiracist Coalition, and local BIPOC youth.

For more information on how you can get involved in the SURJ Marin SRO campaign, please follow us on our Facebook page and watch for upcoming action items in our weekly newsletter.
