Women's March Chicago organizers have decided not to host a march in Januaryan event that has attracted hundreds of thousands of supporters to Grant Park in concert with similar marches across the globe, The Chicago Tribune reported.
High costs and limited volunteer hours were cited as the main reasons for canceling the annual rally/march, although organizers have said they'll commemorate the anniversary of the original march with another activity.
Marches and rallies are still planned for Jan. 19 in Washington, D.C., and dozens of cities nationwide. Chicago suburbs such as New Lenox and Woodstock are also slated to hold events.
