Amnesty International Club
The purpose of the Amnesty International Club is to make up part of a worldwide movement of citizens who campaign for the preservation and work against the violation of our recognized human rights. We inspire hope for a better world and promote international solidarity. We will not only learn about current issues and news on the worldwide human rights violations but we will educate students on the impact a small group of people can have on other citizens of the world.

The Coalition for Community Justice
The Coalition for Community Justice was started in March 2006 by a group of students concerned about the treatment and wages of Eckerd College housekeepers, facility and maintenance workers. The group designed an action plan and worked with the administration at school to devise a way to raise wages for the workers. For the 2006-2007 school years the housekeepers all received raises due to the college and ECOS donating money to the club. The Coalition also does activities to show appreciation to the staff members at school. These activities include cook outs, holiday and thank you gifts.
