Participants in the #MillionStudentMarch will demand that public colleges be made tuition-free, all student debt be cancelled and a $15 minimum wage be given to all campus workers. The rally will start near the patio walkway of the A. Ray Olphin Student Union building on the University of Utah campus. For more details, phone 801-703-4631 or email Scott Wood at scottadamwood@gmail.com. Thursday, Nov. 12, 12:30 p.m., StudentMarch.org
