MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Americans, who don’t agree with the outcome of this week’s Presidential Election, are quietly showing their solidarity.  By wearing a safety pin, they are showing their support for minorities, LGBT individuals, women, Muslims and any other groups who were targeted by President-Elect Donald Trump.

The safety pins are a message, a declaration to the world, that they are allies in the fight against intolerance and should be considered a “safe space.”

Even celebrities, such as Patrick Stewart, are joining the movement.

The #safetypin idea was inspired by a movement following Brexit in the United Kingdom as a message of hope and it’s catching on here now.

Many people are posting selfies on social media wearing safety pins and writing, “#Safetypin, I’m an ally… All those exposed to hate and violence, you’re not alone….”
