NEW ORLEANS – About 150 students gathered and marched Uptown through the campus of Loyola University Wednesday in response to the presidential election.
Students chanted “This is what democracy looks like,” and "Say it loud, say it clear, everyone is welcome here." Students added a sanctuary campus was the idea that no matter where someone immigrated from, they wanted others to feel welcome to finish their degree at Loyola.
The march lasted a little over an hour. Before the group went through campus, speakers talked about immigration rights and issues.
According to The New Orleans Advocate, a protest was held Monday on Tulane University’s campus. Students said during that demonstration they feel unsafe and anti-minority sentiments have been on the rise on campus since the presidential election.
