About the National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere:
Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) was formed in 1989 after a young man named Alex Orange lost his life while trying to break up a fight at a party. His grieving classmates gathered in West Charlotte Senior High School's cafeteria and vowed to organize against violence in Alex's memory. The group formed Students Against Violence Everywhere, with the vision that all students will be able to attend a school that is safe, secure, free of fear, and conducive to learning. In just 17 years, SAVE has expanded from that first chapter in Charlotte, North Carolina, to over 200,000 members in over 1,600 SAVE chapters across the U.S. Today, SAVE serves youth in elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, colleges, and community youth-serving organizations in 45 states and several foreign countries. SAVE is coordinated by a North Carolina-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere, but it is still led by students, for students.
