Chicago Women's March organizers have called off the annual event in their city as controversy swirls around organizers of the national initiative, which was first launched two years ago in response to President Donald Trump's election victory.
Local organizers announced in a social media post last month that they would not be holding a Women's March in January 2019 because they had already invested "so much time, money, energy and effort" into a "March to the Polls" event ahead of November's midterm elections.
However, the decision to cancel the event also comes shortly after the Chicago branch of the Women's March hit out at leaders of the national initiative over their ties to the Nation of Islam, a religious group that has been condemned by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a designated hate group over its "deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric," with its primary teaching promoting black racial superiority.
