The Late News: Student Solidarity March

Two weeks ago there was a solidarity march on the UofU campus.  Hundreds of people, staff, faculty, and students participated.

They marched for people of color, and equality.

On this podcast, Nathan visits with us. He voiced concerns at the march and shared wisdom and thoughts with us for a while. Professors and faculty were there to hear a wide range of student concerns, from need for more resources to voices that need to be heard.  Students at the U wait to see what action takes place.

UofU football team is out of the playoffs with the loss last weekend.

National News has a world travel alert out due to terror threats.

Special shout out to Nathan for visiting the show today.
