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! We have more than 40,000 members, and hundreds of thousands more supporters and participating educators working together to build a more sustainable future for a crowded planet. Population Connection works to ensure that every woman around the world who wants to delay or end childbearing has access to the health services and contraceptive supplies she needs in order to do so.
Our core programs:
- Population Education (PopEd): We train K-12 teachers and produce curriculum materials that address population issues and reach 3 million students each year;
- Grassroots Outreach: We engage an active constituency of U.S. advocates for international family planning programs;
- Advocacy: We work directly with federal policymakers to fund and improve international family planning.
Population Connection is a non-partisan organization that does not engage in electoral politics. Our sister organization, Population Connection Action Fund, is the political arm of Population Connection.
