3 founding board members of Women’s March leaving after allegations of anti-Semitism
(CNN) -- Founders of the Women's March are leaving the organization's board after facing allegations of anti-Semitism, which they deny, that threatened to overshadow the work of grassroots activists. The Women's March announced Monday that Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland and Linda Sarsour will transition off of the board and focus on other advocacy projects. The group's leadership has faced criticism for their association with the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan.
