There is a petition with over 2,700 signatures to rename Sir Francis Drake Blvd. "To have the main road that travels through Marin County be named after a known slave trader glorifies and honors his work. Honoring a slave trader is incredibly offensive and isn't inclusive to Marin's community at large. Marin County is making a bold statement to the world that the morals and values that was upheld by Sir Francis Drake is honored by naming a major thoroughfare after him. "
