DNC Welcomes Back Controversial Women’s March Leaders Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour

Eighteen months after seeming to pull their sponsorship of the Women’s March due to allegations of anti-Semistim among the group’s leadership, it appears the Democratic National Committee has welcomed two of the organization’s controversial former leaders back into the fold. 

Tamika Mallory, the former co-president of the Women’s March, spoke briefly during Monday’s meeting of the Black Caucus about the importance of securing justice for Breonna Taylor, an EMT who was shot by police as they executed a no-knock warrant at her home in May. 

In January 2019, Mallory appeared on The View to address criticism and allegations of her team’s leadership of the Women’s March and over the course of that interview refused to denounce Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan—whom she once described on Instagram as the GOAT (greatest of all time)—for his anti-Semitic and homophobic rhetoric.  

“I didn’t call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric,” Mallory said at the time. “I called him the greatest of all time because of what he’s done in black communities.”

She later said she should not be judged, “through the lens of a man.”
