Cal Poly students and faculty protest Donald Trump election victory
Students are expressing their feelings regarding last night’s election of Donald Trump as protests are taking place on college campuses throughout California, including Cal Poly.
About 200 students and faculty marched in and around the University Union building Wednesday.
Cal Poly student Matt Klepfer said he sees Donald Trump as a threat to people of color, women and himself.
“Donald Trump and Mike Pence are a threat to LGBT folks, including myself," Klepfer said. "Mike Pence has one of the worst track records on LGBT rights.”
Vice President of Affairs Keith Humphrey said that the university was aware of the plans.
“We always encourage our students to use their voice, and use the free speech rights that they have in the country,” Humphrey said.
The protest was formed by several students, but they are not an established campus group.
