OKLAHOMA CITY -

A few dozen people turned out in Oklahoma City for a combination peace rally and anti-Trump protest. 

"We're here because the name of this evil that we're fighting is misogyny. It's patriarchy. It is racism. It is homophobia," activist Mark Faulk told the group.

There were two rallies that merged into one. The first near Chesapeake Arena where about 36 people turned out.

"We reject the hateful and divisive rhetoric that Donald Trump used in his campaign,” demonstrator Elizabeth Hubbard said. “All week I’ve been reading in the news about horrible acts. Women having their hijabs ripped off. School children being told to go home. This is unacceptable."

Those demonstrators joined a few dozen more near the Civic Center. 

They say they’re concerned about the things Donald Trump has said. 

"The talk about blacks. The talk about gays. The talk about Muslims, you know, to get them out,” said demonstrator Tanesha Garrett. “You know that's the American dream for us all to come here and do better as a country united so. Just everything he said."

There were no counter protesters.
