Coalition on Human Needs - SAVE for All Campaign

Say NO to Austerity!

Coalition on Human Needs - SAVE for All Campaign

Strengthening America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All is a coalition of national, state and local advocacy groups, service providers, faith-based organizations, policy experts, labor and civil rights groups 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. Join the SAVE for All Campaign Group by visiting the Stay Connected page.

The campaign will develop materials that make the case for the involvement of federal resources, engage grassroots advocates, employ media strategies and contact members of Congress with messages consistent with the campaign's Statement of Principles of:
  • Protecting low- and moderate-income people in budget and deficit reduction proposals.
  • Preventing multi-year appropriations caps that force harsh reductions in domestic/human needs services and other beneficial programs.
  • Preventing restrictive structural changes to essential programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
  • Balancing spending cuts needed to address the debt with progressive sources of revenue.
