In 2009, under the guidance of activist Zackie Achmat, the Coalition to End Discrimination was formed and run by UCT students with a vested interest in the pursuit for equality in South Africa and the rest of the world.

Working with the Coalition to End Discrimination was a vital lesson in organised, responsive political action as well as in leadership and social responsibility.
