Protests and a call for promoting love and equality are taking place in Michigan following Donald Trump's election to the presidency.

The Ann Arbor News reports hundreds of students gathered Wednesday at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor to protest Trump's election. Another gathering that the newspaper says drew more than 1,000 focused on love, equality and discussion.

Lamees Mekkaoui, a senior at the University of Michigan and member of the Socialist Students Organization, helped organize the anti-Trump rally. Mekkaoui says "we wanted to provide a more active form of protest, so people could share their feelings and provide points of action going forward."

Protests also took place in Detroit. The Detroit News reports about 100 demonstrators rallied at downtown's Campus Martius park.
