Women’s March Apologizes for Email Reporting an Average Donation of $14.92: ‘A Year of Colonization’

On Tuesday, the Women’s March apologized after an email reporting an average donation of $14.92 sent out by them, a figure which reflects the year when Christopher Columbus came to the Americas.

The apology on Twitter mentions “We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week,” adding further “It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.”

It is not clear yet whether the apology came as a response to certain complaints made by email recipients displeased after the mention of 1492. When the Women’s March were requested for a remark from Fox News Digital, they didn’t respond immediately.

The apology was extensively criticized on Twitter, with many users stating that they weren’t able to ascertain whether the post was sarcasm or not.
