Over the weekend, national co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, and Linda Sarsour stepped down from their positions with the Women’s March group. The group had reportedly severed ties with the three following controversies which include accusations of anti-Semitism.
Each was expected to “transition off of the Women’s March Board and onto other projects focused on advocacy within their respective organizations,” the organization said Monday in a statement obtained by the Post.
Many of the new board reportedly acknowledged “mistakes and missteps” in the past, though they didn’t provide specific instances. Under the previous leadership, the Women’s March was regularly under fire over its ties to anti-Semitic groups and comments deemed anti-Semitic.
