We are America's Grassroots Population Organization

Ending Unsustainable Population Growth Begins With You

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

Join efforts with over 40,000 other members and hundreds of thousands of supporters of Population Connection, and make a difference in the lives of marginalized people and the future of our planet.

Population Connection has been America’s grassroots population organization since its founding as Zero Population Growth—or ZPG—in 1968. Although we changed our name in 2002, our mission remains the same. We advocate to achieve population stabilization through better access to and increased education about voluntary family planning.


There are an estimated 214 million women in the developing world who want to avoid getting pregnant but who aren’t using a modern method of contraception. Population Connection works with the White House and the United States Congress to increase international family planning funding to the level required to eliminate unintended pregnancy around the world. We are not a medical service provider—we are a social movement and a powerful force for the collective voices of Americans concerned about runaway population growth.
