For the second time in as many nights, demonstrators have taken to the streets to protest after Donald Trump's presidential victory.
On Thursday night around 5 p.m., more than a thousand people gathered at the Thomas Paine Plaza outside the Municipal Services Building.
The protest was organized on Facebook as "Our 100: Philly Women in Formation, Vigil & Protest" by a feminist group.
According to Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan, the demonstration remained peaceful and no arrests were made.
