Women’s March organizers angered their supporters Thursday by announcing that Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver an address on the opening night of its inaugural National Women’s Convention, leading to some saying they are boycotting the event and the group.
“This choice sends the wrong message. We’ve reached out to the @womensmarch organizers to share our disappointment and offer our help,” EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock, who heads the political action committee dedicated to increasing the number of women in elected office, wrote on Twitter.
“It’s not enough to say we want women to make change — we have to uplift the women leaders doing the work,” Schriock added.
