CA Organizers Cancel Women’s March Due to “Overwhelmingly White” Participants
THE ABSOLUTE STATE of the Democratic Party.
The organizers of the annual Women’s March have decided not to hold a rally in Eureka on Jan. 19, as previously planned, because they say participants do not represent the diversity of the area.
“This decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march,” organizers said in a press release.

They said organizers will continue to meet and discuss how to broaden representation to create an event that represents Humboldt County.
“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”
There needs to be accountability and an honest reckoning. There’s a lot of work to do, white women. A lot of learning. A lot of growing.
We want to do it with you.
Stay tuned. https://t.co/nN0cFqqmy5

I am actually begging can we please stop this
This has NOTHING to do with politics or policy
This is pure hatred
Freedom of free speech is what makes out country great
Giving these words a platform any larger than a sewer is truly awful
Please stop https://t.co/3kkg6e84e0

They’re quickly broadening their horizons.
From Monday night:
“Let us stop pretending that white women and white men are going to save us from ourselves … They’re always going to vote with their whiteness.” —@DeeTwoCents on @allinwithchris pic.twitter.com/9Qf1XgxU8V
