An art project spreading across the nation protesting President-elect Donald Trump is now in San Francisco, after first popping up in Oakland over the weekend.

It's made out of sticky notes.

It's called the Wall of Empathy and it's participatory protest art. That means the artists are folks that happen to walk by and write a message.

The organizers are urging people to write about their emotions after last week's election results as a type of collective therapy.

A lot of messages we saw were messages of inclusion or some of the hashtags that have gone viral across social media and in numerous protests nationwide.

Messages like: "All lives matter" or "love trumps hate."

"Right now a lot of people are very upset about the outcome of the election," said one participant Rhonda Jarrar. "And now more than ever it's important for us as a community to come together to make sure we're moving forward and making progress instead of regressing."

Organizers say the Post-It notes are meant to support groups targeted by President-elect Trump's campaign rhetoric. It was inspired by a similar project in New York.

You'll see the Post-It notes at the Montgomery Street, 16th Street and 23th Street BART stations and in Oakland on Grand Avenue.
