Meet our Members


Meet the Member Engagement Team

We have a team here to inform and guide you in becoming a volunteer activist with Population Connection.

Hannah Evans
hevans@popconnect.org
(202) 974-7703

Hannah has always been interested in issues surrounding environmental and social justice. In school, she studied Environmental Policy/ Natural Resource Conservation and Political Science, and made the population connection both because of her demography classes and while traveling throughout Central and South America after college. She completed her Master’s degree in Political Ecology, and focused her research on issues surrounding ethical consumption and international trade within the context of sugar production in Nicaragua. She combines her experience in the non-profit sector with her passions for international development and sustainability to help members become activists in their communities.

Maeve Doolittle
mdoolittle@popconnect.org
(202) 974-7732

Growing up in Philadelphia, Maeve saw firsthand that not every child receives a quality education. She was empowered to take things into her own hands and make a difference in her local community. While in college, she recruited potential future educators to teach and improve schools in low-income areas. Maeve made the population connection in college when she did research on the relationship between the amount of education a woman receives and how many children she chooses to have. Maeve brings her experience in recruitment to support and empower our members to be activists in a way that is comfortable for them.

Heaven Edwards
hedwards@popconnect.org
(202) 974-7726

Heaven first became an activist by mobilizing communities throughout California to ban fracking, a technique of natural resource extraction that was developed to meet the needs of a growing population with devastating consumption patterns. From going door to door to waving down people in the streets, Heaven can talk politics to nearly anyone. She made the population connection while studying development in Ghana. She loves children, but saw firsthand the impact that large families has on the life goals of women who aren’t using modern contraceptives. Supporting our members allows Heaven to utilize her experience with activism while continuing the fight for a more sustainable planet.

Roseberline Porcenat
rporcenat@popconnect.org
(202) 974-7705

Roseberline first made the population connection while volunteering with non-profit organizations and seeing firsthand the effect of US policies on international development. As she worked on improving the health of those in Haiti, she discovered the problems and solutions are all interconnected. She realized that you could not improve the health of a community without addressing environmental issues, standing up for reproductive rights, and recognizing the importance of population stabilization. She brings her passion and experience to the membership relations team in order to help members bring light to these issues in their communities.
