The organization behind the Women’s March took some heat on Tuesday after apologizing for the reference to the year 1492 in a charity email.

The group, which was established since March 2017 and hosts annual events, sent an email with the subject line ‘$14.92’.

The body of the email said: ‘We have an important favor to ask.’

Members of the group’s email list were then asked if they were willing to donate $14.92.

The year 1492 is associated with the departure of Christopher Columbus to America. While Columbus still has a holiday with his name, many municipalities have changed it to Indigenous People’s Day to honor the native people who killed Columbus.

The Women’s March organization is behind the annual march, which began after the election of Donald Trump in 2017.

The group apologized for an email on Twitter asking for a donation of $14.92.

The group apologized for an email on Twitter asking for a donation of $14.92.

The group eventually tweeted an apology.

“We deeply apologize for the email sent today,” he said. ‘$14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part for indigenous peoples not to relate to a year of colonialism, conquest and genocide, especially before Thanksgiving.’

He said it is “committed to ending the system of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.”

The group drew scorn on social media from all sides of the political spectrum.

Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz said the marchers “hate America” ​​and that their supporters should respond by donating the amounts of $17.76 and $20.04.

Leftist Nando Villa wrote: ‘We did. We finally held the Women’s March accountable for Columbus’ crimes.’

George W. Ari Fleischer, former Bush press secretary: ‘Let’s all get in on this and raise this amount to $17.76. Then they would really lose their mind.
