America's voice for population stabilization

Overpopulation threatens the quality of life for people everywhere. Population Connection is the national grassroots population organization that educates young people and advocates progressive action to stabilize world population at a level that can be sustained by Earth’s resources.

Our goals and programs

June Magazine Issue

An article about high fertility in Ghana and the Marie Stopes clinics in that country that meet people where they are with family planning education and services takes center stage in this issue. We also heard from Dara Purvis, a professor at Penn State Law and the former Vice Chair of our Board of Directors, about Justice Alito’s leaked draft opinion on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Supreme Court case. And Dr. Marni LaFleur, the founder and executive director of one of our international partners, Lemur Love, answered questions about the organization’s work and about population, health, and environment in Madagascar.

Our only hope is to slow, and ultimately cease, the astronomical growth of the human population, to allow the earth to heal and support a smaller, stable population. I was thankful to find your organization as a conduit to contribute toward a better tomorrow, even though it is one that I will never see. Donna J. Warlick, Population Connection Member
