A rift between current leadership and a former organizer of the Women’s March has become so extreme that two marches on the same day will be held next month on the streets of New York City, according to a report.
Vanessa Wruble, a Brooklyn-based activist, said she was kicked out of the progressive group in part for being Jewish, after Tamika Mallory, a black gun control activist, and Carmen Perez, a Latina criminal justice reform activist, told her that Jewish people needed to confront their own role in racism, The New York Times reported.
Wruble went on to help found a local women’s group called March On, and now that group, which stresses its denunciation of anti-Semitism, will have a march the same day in New York as the Women’s March group, which the Times said will be led by women of color.
Mallory and Perez denied the allegations to The Times.
“…We’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, ALL Jews are targeted by it,” Mallory said in a statement to The Times.
