MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – People gathered in Minneapolis Saturday to show support for Muslims in Minnesota and across the country.

The “Stand Up Against Islamophobia March” started around 1 p.m. People met at Mayday Books on Cedar Avenue South and marched to the Minnesota Republican Party Headquarters on East Franklin Avenue.

Organizers say the march is meant to show their opposition to hate speech and crimes against Muslims. They say they are responding to comments made by Donald Trump, in particular, over the course of his campaign.
