Upper School March to Marin City

On Thursday, February 4, upper school students, faculty, and administrators will be marching from the main campus to Rocky Graham Park in Marin City to show allyship and love for our Marin City families. As you know, Marin City is the most racially diverse city in all of Marin, with mostly Black and Latinx families, many of whom are a part of Marin Horizon and Horizon Community School. With the start of the Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action, February 1-5, and to kick off Black History month, we thought it was appropriate and mission-aligned to do the march. Black Lives Matter at School is a national coalition organizing for racial justice in education. Their motto is: A Week of Action. A Year of Purpose. A Lifetime of Practice.

This fall, students have been learning and engaging in courageous conversations about identity, race, gender and various -isms (racism and sexism, for example) that plague our nation. Similar to last year’s Climate March, this is an opportunity for our students to exercise their voice and agency in support of racial justice, and more specifically Black lives.

There will be an exciting, student-centered program at Rocky Graham Park. We will hear from student speakers from each grade level, who will share various pieces of writing—from letters to Madam Vice President Kamala Harris, reflections on why Black lives matter, and ally statements written by different racial affinity groups. Our opening speaker is Lynnette Egenlauf, Marin City native and Community Service District Board Member. The closing speaker is our very own Ramona Polk, also a Marin City native and Marin Horizon’s Admissions Associate. 
Thanks for supporting our racial justice activists! 
Organized by: Rochelle Reodica, Stevie Lee, Andres DeRosales, Nikki Tokar, Pauline Bohn, and Victoria Huerta-Miller (Planning Committee) and the Upper School team

*Please Note: To follow COVID protocols, students in grade-level cohorts will leave at staggered times, be physically distanced, and wear masks at all times. They will be spread out across Rocky Graham Park during the program.
