Organizers said it was encouraging to see so many people turn out to support their mission.

"In the age of social media, it's easy to push a share button, but to come out is a little more difficult so it's exciting to see this going viral in a physical sense," Sarah Frankel, who helped organize it, said.

Students said it was a good way to show people that UT is standing together against hate speech.
