Campaign to End the Death Penalty
"Our purpose is to work toward the abolition of the death penalty while fighting for the rights of current death row inmates," says first-year and co-founder David Gardner.

Creative Progressive Action
"We wanted a group that would be dedicated to social-justice issues on a direct-action basis as opposed to a more academic slant, " says member Andrea Pastor, a third-year psychology and English concentrator.

Environmental Concerns Organization
"The main goals of ECO are to foster an environmental conscience among students and to make them more aware of environmental concerns," says member Niels Bradshaw, a third-year biology concentrator.

Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance
"Through raising awareness, education, and action we hope to ensure that women's issues are acknowledged by all, and we hope to work for greater equality both on and off campus," says member Rebekah Lusk, a third-year Law, Letters, and Society concentrator.

South Asia Watch
"South Asia Watch was created as a forum to rethink the multiple renderings of South Asia and the South Asian diaspora... and learn from its regional particularities and commonalities," say co-founders Anisa Rahim, a fourth-year English and South Asian studies concentrator, and Amy Paul, a fourth-year in public policy.

Students for a Free Tibet
"We want to educate others about the situation in Tibet and to encourage them to do what they can to help," says co-founder and president Adrienne Stauffer, a third-year chemistry and South Asian languages and civilizations concentrator.
