A regional Planned Parenthood decided to cut ties with a Women’s March head after leaders seemingly refused to condemn a history of anti-Semitism from Minister Louis Farrakhan.
The Northwest United States and Hawaii Planned Parenthood announced it would be un-inviting Women’s March co-chair Tamika D. Mallory after she sat through an anti-Semitic speech by Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam’s leader.
“When leaders of the Women’s March — or any allied group — stray from these aspirations, we will do everything we can to help them return to our shared mission. The Women’s March has done much to give space to activists across the country, and its historic showing has been built on an intersectional vision of justice, rights, and equality,” the chapter noted in a statement posted to Facebook.
Mallory, after facing a slew of outrage for attending the speech and not explicitly disavowing Farrakhan, defended herself by arguing that she will never agree with everyone she does work with.
“It is impossible for me to agree with every statement or share every viewpoint of the many people who I have worked with or will work with in the future. As I do not wish to be held responsible for the words of others when my own history shows that I stand in opposition to them, I also do not think it is fair to question anyone who works with me, who supports my work,” Mallory said Wednesday.
