Through this structure, Savvy is uniquely connected to communicate upcoming campaigns, calls-to-action and high urgency topics. It is this 'we-are-one' approach that creates lasting change.  We are honored to announce our fifth and final founding nonprofit partner: Safer States. 

    Safer States is a network of diverse environmental health coalitions and organizations in states around the country that share a bold and urgent vision. Safer States believes families, communities, and the environment should be protected from the devastating impacts of our society’s heavy use of chemicals.
