Speaker Series

We have some great staff speakers who would love to present to your group, club, or classroom—virtually, or in person once it’s again safe to congregate.

During quarantine, we have begun offering conference calls and webinars as a benefit to members, to give you an inside look into our work and mission-affirming interest in issues related to population concerns. The first two presentations are with John Seager, Population Connection President and CEO, and with Hannah Evans, Communications Manager. Future speakers will include friends and partners from outside the organization as well.

This archive will grow with time, as we will add new presentations when they become available. Enjoy!

Note: The audio in John’s presentation scrambles for a bit a couple minutes in (working from home has its tech challenges)—please skip ahead and continue listening!


Meet Our Members

Keith Kaback, MD, and Sandy Jerman

A jack of all-volunteer-trades, Dr. Keith Kaback has dedicated nearly all of his life to helping others. A Population Connection member since 1988, he has become one of our most passionate volunteers, co-hosting Population Connection events with the Center for Biological Diversity in his hometown of Tucson, AZ, and his favorite: the Population Connection Earth Day booth. Keith served as an emergency medicine physician for over 30 years, working in both university and private hospitals.

Keith’s sister-in-law Sandy is 52 years old, has Down Syndrome, and has been an avid environmentalist for years. Sandy loves to get involved with Earth Day, and last year greatly enjoyed helping at the Population Connection booth in Tucson. She had been anxiously awaiting Earth Day this year so that she could work the booth again, and she was very disappointed that she would not be able to do so due to the pandemic. But Sandy loves to navigate the internet and enjoyed being part of our online Earth Day Challenge.

Membership Relations Staff

Roseberline Porcenat
Senior Membership Relations Coordinator
rporcenat@popconnect.org
(202) 974-7705

Roseberline first made the population connection while volunteering with non-profit organizations and seeing firsthand the effects of U.S. policies on international development. As she worked on improving the health of those in Haiti, she discovered the problems and solutions are interconnected. She realized that it’s impossible to 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.

Stephanie Wolfe
Membership Relations Assistant
swolfe@popconnect.org
(202) 974-7732

Ever since Stephanie realized how much humans were impacting the environmental wellbeing of our planet, she knew she wanted to spend her time protecting it for future generations. She made the connection over time, noticing how technological innovation, mass production, and depletion of resources skyrocketed to match rapid population growth over the past century. Population Connection’s human rights approach to this issue resonated with Stephanie as she eagerly joined the Membership Relations Team earlier this year. She looks forward to helping facilitate meaningful experiences for members as they make the connection themselves and with others in their communities.
