:-hmm many believe it's really because funding for the organisers has dried up so white women were thrown under the bus as an excuse :-justdont


"The event, scheduled for January 19 in Eureka, was canceled after “many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march,” according to a Facebook post from Beth Ann Wylie, one of the organizers."

"“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” Wylie wrote.

Critics reminded the group that Humboldt County, where Eureka is located, is over 74 percent non-Hispanic white – not exactly a bastion of diversity. But they appear to be optimistic that they can get more diverse in a month or two, claiming to be planning a March event to celebrate International Women’s Day."
