In response to the outcome of the presidential election, on Thursday Nov. 1o, students and community members alike marched against hate throughout the University of Redlands campus. Thanks to a Facebook event that spread like wild fire Thursday afternoon, over 300 people congregated on the steps of the Memorial Chapel at 9 p.m to take a stand against hateful rhetoric. Proudly holding signs and walking vigorously, protest participants chanted “We reject the President Elect,” “Less Hate, More Love,” “Love Trumps Hate” and several other phrases in a united body against Donald Trump.
“We will raise our voices to show that we WILL protect each other, no matter who we are, no matter who tries to instill fear,” the Facebook page advertised. And that is exactly what the marchers did.
