ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Several hundred students and residents gathered at Washington University Friday to hold a love rally just before 5 p.m.

The gathering was in response to Donald Trump’s election to the presidency and was designed to spur volunteer action in the wake of election results.

"We are a committed bunch moving forward and volunteering and some of the speakers are going to discuss how to turn grief and anguish into something productive," said Erin Klein, organizer of the peaceful protest.

The crowd swelled to more than 300 just after 5 p.m., and the protest was slated to go for an hour.
