Thousands of students from the San Francisco Unified School District walked out of classrooms on Thursday and took to the streets to protest Tuesday's election of Donald Trump.
"Not my president, not my president," chanted a group of students walking down Grove Street away from City Hall, where students from at least eight high schools met to begin the march.
The citywide protest was organized through social networks, including Instagram and Snapchat, said Laura, a junior at Mission High School. She pulled up an Instagram app on her phone to reveal the organizing message.
"The walkout tomorrow doesn’t just apply for people [from one specific school]," an Instagram message said. "People from all different schools can come support REP YOUR ROOTS AND STAND UP!"
Jocelyn, a 17-year-old senior for Lowell High School, said she was marching to show her disagreement with the election result -- one she couldn’t express at the polls.
