Chicago Women’s March Drops January Event

The Women’s March is planning to take to the streets again on January 19 in Washington, DC, to protest President Trump, but groups affiliated with the left-wing organization are dropping out in the wake of charges that its leaders embrace anti-Semitism, including associating with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

The Chicago Tribune reported that the Chicago Women’s March has decided not to host a January event, citing the high cost and number of volunteers as reasons, but the group rebuked anti-Semitism and other claims of discrimination, including against LGBT individuals, after Teresa Shook, one of the founders, called for national leaders including anti-Israel Muslim Linda Sarsour (pictured), Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez to step down.
