TULSA -- Dozens of anti-Trump protesters gathered to peacefully protest outside the Oklahomans for Equality Center Saturday in Tulsa.

According to a spokesperson with the Equality Center, Marq Lewis of We the People and others spoke at the event.

Though the event was called an anti-Trump rally, people also voiced other concerns at the event including racist, religion and gay rights.

Organizers say the rally was meant to create a safe space for people to share their thoughts and feelings.

"There's nothing we can really change about the presidential election, but we can do things to help our own community and I think that's where it starts is we have to start in our own homes," said rally organizer Sarah Rana.
