Several post-election demonstrations held in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis joined cities across the United States taking to the streets to voice their frustrations about the outcome of the presidential election.

There have been at least three demonstrations in under 24 hours in the Bluff City, each of them ending peacefully and without violence.

A protest, a rally and a walk for solidarity — three separate demonstrations with one common thread: Donald Trump and the outcome of the election.

"Being a person of color, being from a Muslim family, being from a family of immigrants and refugees ... it legitimizes racism, legitimizes sexism, legitimizes ignorance and xenophobia and Islamic phobia," student Farah Ibrahim said.

That's how more than 100 people felt at the National Civil Rights Museum after marching through downtown Memphis on Sunday.

Several groups and minorities felt marginalized in the election.

"We would want to make sure that all the changes that have been made, the progress that has been made for minorities doesn't slide back," demonstrator Amber Price said.

Hours later in Midtown, dozens stood outside of Planned Parenthood on Poplar Avenue.

"We're very concerned about what's coming."

The organization worried that under Trump's anti-abortion leadership, laws will be repealed and funding for groups like this one will be snatched away.

"We're here to talk about it. We're here to let our feelings be known." said Ashley Coffield of Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis.

Another group shared its feelings Friday night, yelling "not my president" and "we're not going to stand for him attacking minorities."

The anti-Trump protesters marched through a busy Overton Square with signs and candles.

And while each demonstration was peaceful, with police on standby, the groups still had its critics, whom one demonstrator responded to: "So do you want us to sit back and do nothing? That's my question to them."
