Add Your Organization to CHN’s Letter to the New Administration and Congress Reaffirming the Principles and Priorities of the Strengthening America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All Campaign
From FRAC (Food Research and Action Center):
FRAC, in partnership with the Coalition on Human Needs and hundreds of national, state, and local organizations, is part of the Strengthening America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All Campaign.
SAVE for All works under four guiding principles- that federal priorities must (1) protect and assist low-income and vulnerable people; (2) invest in broadly shared economic growth and jobs; (3) increase revenues from fair sources; and (4) seek savings from reducing waste in the Pentagon and elsewhere.
This campaign is currently circulating a sign-on letter (for either organizations or individuals) addressed to the incoming Administration and Congress.
The letter (pdf) reads:
“We call upon you to make investments of proven effectiveness in order to fulfill this promise, and to reject policies and language that demean and discriminate against race, gender, immigrant status, disability or religion… We also call upon you to make the economy work for all by investing in our infrastructure and our people. We must invest in the work of rebuilding public housing and schools, roads, water systems, and public transit that protect health and safety and meet the needs of a modern economy. Further, we should give priority to low-income communities most in need, including communities of color, and hire from those communities… We strongly urge you to choose shared prosperity and fairness and to reject cuts that leave millions of Americans behind. We stand ready to support actions consistent with the SAVE for All principles and to oppose proposals that worsen inequality and harm low-income people.”
