Daily Mail – Organizers canceled the Women’s March event in Northern California slated for next month over concerns that the rally-goers would be overwhelmingly white. The Women’s March planners say the rally that was to be held in Eureka Jan. 19, would not represent the diversity of the area, according to KRCR-TV.
“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” a press release from the organizers stated. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.”
The organizers say they’ll continue to discuss how to broaden representation of Humboldt County in a future event.
