TAKE THE NEXT STEP
Get Involved with Population Connection
Due to the risks during the COVID-19 pandemic, our Membership Engagement team will continue to refrain from hosting any in-person events. Although we can’t gather in person, we’ve updated this page with additional resources for you to expand your knowledge on issues important to our organization’s mission as well as virtual events we’ll be organizing.
Let’s Get Started
How much time do you have?
Click on a time slot below to see how you can make a difference.
During quarantine we began offering virtual events such as webinars, presentations, film screenings, and training courses as a way to stay connected and share an inside look into our work and mission-affirming interest in issues related to population concerns. This archive will grow with time, as we will add new presentations when they become available. Enjoy!
In honor of this year’s Earth Day, we plan to offer a month-long presentation series that explores family planning services and reproductive rights in various regions around the world. Stay tuned for the lineup of speakers and presentation dates!
Meet Our Members
When he’s not busy surfing, cycling, or backpacking, Adam Englund likes to spend his free time advocating for the planet and all its inhabitants. Before joining Population Connection in 1992, Adam was the Mayor’s appointee to the Los Angeles Bicycle Advisory Committee and worked on numerous other transportation committees pushing for alternative, more efficient modes of travel. Being involved with urban planning helped him make the “population connection” as he began to understand that accommodating such a large number of people meant impinging on natural habitats and depleting Earth’s resources. He would always ask—and still does, “What is fundamentally the most important problem of our time?” His answer? Population growth. “It has an impact on so many different things … that’s why this organization is so important, to make the connection.”
Adam’s concerns over habitat destruction and biodiversity loss are his driving motivators to talk about population issues. Through his activism, he hopes to open people’s minds to a more holistic perspective. “The perspective that one population is better than another population is part of why we’re destroying this planet … We have to shift that perspective to appreciate all life.”

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.
