GALLERY: 'Not My America' rally at the University of Rochester 

A "Not My America" rally was held in the University of Rochester's Eastman Quadrangle on Friday, bringing several hundred people out to protest against the election of Donald Trump and his history of racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, and homophobic remarks and practices.
