Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors told Associated Press that she intends to step down from her role as executive director of Black Lives Matter.
She decried what she called a smear campaign from a far-right group, but said neither that nor recent criticism from other Black organizers influenced her departure, AP reported.
“I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” Cullors told The Associated Press. “It feels like the time is right.”
In April the New York Post reported that Cullors went on a real estate buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.
