Love Trumps Hate

On Friday, Aug. 12, a “Love Trumps Hate” rally was announced.

Protesters were advised to arrive at 5 p.m. for a “flash mob,” doing “direct action civil disobedience.”

An email calling the protest urged those who attend to wear HRC shirts — promoting Democratic nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and take items to make noise.

"We are going to stand up to Donald Trump tomorrow," the announcement read.
