Eureka, California: Organizers planning a local Women’s March in January pulled the plug on the event, because participants would have been ‘overwhelmingly white’, and they feared being perceived as non-inclusive.  More than 80% of Humboldt County is white.  The nationwide group has had recent controversies that include the Women’s March Washington state disbanding over its national leadership’s ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  The Rhode Island chapter split from its parent organization in May for the same reason.

Organizers planning a local California Women’s March for January have pulled the plug on the event because attendees would have been “overwhelmingly white.”

Humboldt County organizers were considering hosting a rally in Eureka, Calif., on Jan. 19 to commemorate the third anniversary of the original Women’s March in Washington, D.C., held the day after President Trump’s inauguration in 2017. But they decided to can the event because of fears it would be perceived as being noninclusive.

“The local organizers are continuing to meet and discuss how to broaden representation in the organizing committee to create an event that represents and supports peoples who live here in Humboldt. Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the group said Friday in a statement. “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.”

The group said Friday it was now “exploring holding an event in March to celebrate International Women’s Day.”

More than 80 percent of Humboldt County is white, according to 2018 data posted on U.S. Census Bureau’s website.
