On Wednesday, June 13, 2007 the seven founders of s.a.v.e. were recognized by the Jersey City Municipal Council as an official youth advocacy organization. Each member received a beautiful, official Resolution commending and honoring our work so far as a new preservation group and encouraging further s.a.v.e. successes and achievements. It meant so much to be recognized and it will help a lot in our future endeavors to be recognized as an official organization!
