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.

Philadelphia police officers were out in force to provide safety for the protesters. On Twitter, the department warned motorists to expect delays in the area.

After meeting across from City Hall, the protesters are marching west toward 30th Street Station.

On Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Socialist Alternative organized a march, blaming the Democratic Party for allowing Trump to assume the presidency by backing Hillary Clinton instead of Bernie Sanders.
