Donald Trump won the presidential election of the United States with a handy majority, but his foes haven't folded yet, not even in Dallas. A rally has been organized for Wednesday, November 9, to take place at Victory Park at 7 pm.
The organizer is Next Generation Action Network, a group founded by Dominique Alexander with a mission "to cultivate young leaders driven towards the eradication of social injustice through social, educational, civil, human, and community reform."
NextGen has organized previous protests such as the 2014 protest following the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and more recently the march against police brutality in downtown Dallas in July. That event ended with the shooting of 12 police officers; five were killed.
Trump took the state of Texas with 53 percent of the vote; however, Hillary Clinton won Dallas County by nearly double, earning 61 percent of the vote versus Trump's 35 percent.
The rally describes its goal as attempting to bring together kindred souls and reinforce the need to uphold the Constitution.
"This is not a protest, this is a rallying of people who are unafraid to stand up for what is right," states the event, calling it "the first step of many for African Americans, Muslims, Hispanics, disabled Americans, LGBTQ, veterans, the displaced, the marginalized, and the poor."
Dallas will not be the only city to host post-election demonstrations, a number of protests took place on election night, particularly in California. There's even a handy list compiling protests across the country.
