Since 1968, Population Connection (formerly Zero Population Growth or ZPG) has been America’s voice for population stabilization—we are the largest grassroots population organization in the United States! We have more than 40,000 members, and hundreds of thousands more supporters and participating educators. Population Connection works to ensure that every woman around the world who wants to delay or end childbearing has access to the health services and contraceptive supplies she needs in order to do so.
Population Education (PopEd): We train K-12 teachers and produce curriculum materials that address population issues and reach 3 million students each year;
Grassroots Outreach: We engage an active constituency of U.S. advocates for international family planning programs;
Advocacy: We work directly with federal policymakers to fund and improve international family planning.
Population Connection's programs aim to inform public opinion and to influence public initiatives on matters related to population, the environment, the status of women, and the quality of life for all people, through progressive, action-oriented programs.
Population Connection is a non-partisan organization that does not engage in electoral politics. Our sister organization, Population Connection Action Fund, is the political arm of Population Connection.
