CHICAGO — There may not be a Women’s March in Chicago next year.

The event has drawn hundreds of thousands of supporters to Grant Park for the past two years. Organizers say they decided to nix next year’s rally and march, because of high costs and limited volunteer hours, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Instead of a march, the group says a “day of action” is planned for Jan. 19, 2019.

Rallies are still expected in other major cities, including New York and Washington DC.

The announcement comes while national Women’s March leadership faces accusations of anti-Semitism. There has been criticism of Women’s March Inc.’s association with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has made several anti-semitic and homophobic comments.

Women’s March Chicago says they are not directly affiliated with Women’s March Inc.
