What is SAVE for All?
SAVE stands for Strengthening America’s Values and Economy for All. SAVE for All is a campaign of thousands of national, state, and local organizations working to protect important services from harmful federal budget cuts and to save the federal capacity to spur economic recovery and progress for the benefit of all. The signers of the SAVE for All statement of principles are a broad coalition of advocacy groups, service providers, faith-based organizations, policy experts, labor, and civil rights groups.
The SAVE for All Campaign develops materials that make the case for the involvement of federal resources, engages grassroots advocates, employs media strategies and contacts members of Congress with messages consistent with the campaign’s four principles.

How large is the SAVE for All campaign?
We are seeking groups and individuals to sign on from all 50 states as well as U.S. territories. In 2019, some 1,300 local, state, and national groups signed on to the SAVE for All principles. You can see a copy of our 2019 sign-on statement and a list of the national, state, and local endorsing organizations here.
Why is SAVE for All right for this time?
For generations, major problems have been ignored in communities across the country―from hunger to childhood poverty to housing to racial injustice and more. Now, we have an opportunity to deliver real results to millions of people with low and middle-incomes: to make sure we all share in the economic recovery we badly need.
The COVID pandemic laid bare the ways our country has failed to support opportunities and provide protections for all. Racial disparities in deaths and economic devastation stand as an undeniable testament to persistent and historic racial discrimination, structural inequities in access to health care, narrow work opportunities, and housing disparities experienced by people of color and women.
Our nation’s progress depends on equal rights and opportunities for all.
We have a once-in-a-generation chance for Congress to pass a transformational economic recovery package that invests in our future and advances our shared priorities. And we can make these critical changes by finally making the rich and corporations pay their fair share in taxes.
How will joining the SAVE for All Campaign advance a human needs agenda in Congress?
Week in and week out, members of SAVE for All engage in meetings on Capitol Hill with members of Congress and their staff. Sometimes, SAVE signees from members’ districts join these meetings, either in person or by phone, with their own personal stories of how they have struggled in today’s economy.. Members of Congress increasingly are aware of SAVE’s depth and breadth. They notice.
