An estimated 300 students gathered with several members of the faculty and staff in the David Saul Smith Union Friday afternoon to listen to a presentation on injustice by six students who held placards and took turns reading speeches prepared by others on the topics of race, class, gender, sexuality, and climate.

The 40-minute event was punctuated with applause and finger-snapping as the speakers focused their remarks on economic inequality, racial discrimination, sexual assault, gender and sexual identity, and climate change.

The meeting concluded with an invitation to those in attendance to join the speakers as they walked to the president’s office to personally deliver the concerns contained in printed copies of their speeches.
