Student Association for Voter Empowerment
Behind the Movement
The Student Association for Voter Empowerment (SAVE) is a national non-partisan, non-profit organization, founded and run by students, with a mission to increase youth voter turnout by removing access barriers and promoting stronger civic education.
Our chapters work with college administrators to institutionalize voter registration, host debates, discussions and town hall forums centered on electoral awareness, coordinate grassroots efforts to reform elections, lead registration programs for local high schools, disseminate voting information and resources, and collaborate with statewide press outlets to bring young voters to a forefront in the media. In less than a year of existence, we have hired a staff of seven people in our Washington DC office, built over 25 chapters in more than 15 states, held numerous press conferences on youth vote trends, hosted national town hall forums with presidential candidates, directed higher ed-meetings on civic education, been featured in dozens of leading newspapers and media outlets, and formed partnerships with The League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, Earth Day Network, Common Cause, and Mobilize.org for a number of key projects.
