On May 4, 2013, an open meeting with the Swarthmore Board of Managers was held in Sci 101. While the meeting was originally intended to focus on fossil fuel divestment, a coalition of students transformed the meeting into an open assembly, addressing a number of student concerns, including sexual assault on campus, the accountability of managers and the administration to students, fossil fuel divestment, and the experiences of students of color, queer students, first generation and working class students among many other issues.

Dozens of students spoke, along with Swarthmore alumni, faculty, and a couple Board members. Students held the space with dignity, demonstrating solidarity and support for one another's struggles in a moving display of student power.

**NOTE** The action taken at the open meeting was the work of a coalition of many student groups and individuals. Swarthmore Mountain Justice was not a leader, but was one voice represented as part of this collective action.
