The Ferguson National Response Network, an organization that has galvanized demonstrators in the aftermath of the August shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, organized a student walkout today at 12:01 p.m. CST (the approximate time of Brown's death on August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri). The organization was started by Philadelphia resident Leslie MacFadyen, together with the Ferguson Action group, and has organized dozens of protests across the country following the grand jury decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. 

Dozens of universities across the country participated, including Harvard, New York University and schools across California. Several high schools also participated in the protest and some cities organized general walkout meeting zones, allowing those without a university or school affiliation to participate.
