Sign onto Campaign to Protect Basic Human Needs
The Strengthening America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All Campaign believes in a stronger America that actively ensures the well-being of low income people. The Campaign is asking organizations to sign onto the campaign’s statement of principles to show the newly elected Congress that the human needs community is unified in our commitment to advocate for low-income people.
The campaign is calling on national, state and local advocacy groups, service providers, faith-based organizations, policy experts, and labor and civil rights organizations from every state to join in telling Congress that the needs of vulnerable populations must not be ignored and should be high on its agenda.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) is a member of the SAVE for All Campaign, as are many of its state partners. NLIHC encourages other organizations to join the campaign by signing onto the statement of principles. Please join Monarch Housing Associates in signing on to support the Campaign.

SAVE for All has four principles:
- Protect low income and vulnerable populations
- Promote job creation and strengthen the economy for all.
- Increase revenues from fair sources.
- Seek responsible savings from wasteful spending in the Pentagon and elsewhere.
The Coalition on Human Needs (CHN) is an alliance of national organizations working together to promote public policies which address the needs of low-income and other vulnerable populations. The Coalition’s members include civil rights, religious, labor and professional organizations, service providers and those concerned with the well-being of children, women, the elderly and people with disabilities.
Thank you for your advocacy – it’s more important than ever! After a few years of progress, the decline in the poverty rate has slowed.
Today about 40 million Americans, including nearly 13 million children live in poverty.
Over the last few decades, wage inequality in the United States has increased significantly, making it increasingly difficult for a growing number of Americans to make ends meet.
