Upcoming Statesboro Women’s March cancelled

Kyle Clark

The Statesboro Women’s March has cancelled their march planned for Jan 19.

This decision follows two years of work from Statesboro Women’s March, involving their campaigning for Mayor Jonathan McCollar along with their previous two marches, according to a post on their Facebook page.

In the statement on their Facebook page they cite wanting to support a wider group of people as a main reason for the march’s cancellation.

Moving forward the organization aims to assist with upcoming local Martin Luther King Jr. events and are working on more plans. They intend to share more information on upcoming projects when they are more solidified.

“We didn’t feel like doing the traditional type of march that we have been doing would be the way to go. It wasn’t really necessarily a lack of involvement, it’s just the lack of a type of involvement,” Lindy Sherwood, Statesboro Women’s March committee member, said.
