Past Capitol Hill Days

Do you care about health and human rights? Family planning? The environment?

Jointly hosted by Population Connection and Population Connection Action Fund, Capitol Hill Days is our annual training lobbying event designed to empower grassroots activists with the information and skills that they need to become effective citizen lobbyists for international family planning. Global population is projected to hit 8 billion in seven years (2024). One billion people live on less than a dollar per day—and 70% of them are women and girls. 225 million women want to prevent pregnancy but aren’t using modern contraception. The political opposition can feel intractable, and we have our work cut out for us to ensure that women everywhere gain access to affordable birth control and reproductive health care.

What we do know is that YOU are our most effective voice on Capitol Hill! Speaking directly to your elected representatives is a uniquely powerful way to send a strong message that family planning matters.

We Are Population Connection

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!
