WATimes: The Southern Poverty Law Center will not sponsor the Women’s March on Washington this year amid allegations of anti-Semitism among the group’s national leadership.
Jen Fuson, a spokeswoman for the SPLC, told The Daily Beast that “other projects” took priority over the Jan. 19 protest but that the organization would still be involved in some marches at the local level.
This comes after the SPLC in 2017 designated itself an “official supporter” of the Women’s March and its “mission to bring together communities insulted, demonized and threatened by the rhetoric of the past election cycle.”
Ms. Fuson would not confirm that the SPLC’s decision was due to allegations of anti-Semitism within the national group’s ranks. more
