About Us

Population Connection Action Fund is:

  • Fighting to ensure that everyone in the world has access to affordable, effective, and appropriate contraceptives;
  • Educating Americans about the impacts of global population growth and about the benefits of investing in international family planning;
  • Mobilizing our grassroots base to advocate for progressive reproductive health policies at the federal level; and
  • Endorsing candidates who support everyone’s right to control their own reproductive destinies.

Our main legislative priorities are to:

  • Increase U.S. foreign aid for international family planning to $1.6 billion a year, including $111 million for UNFPA (the United Nations Population Fund);
  • Institute a permanent legislative ban on the Global Gag Rule via the Global HER Act; and
  • End the prohibition on foreign aid for abortion services overseas (repeal the Helms Amendment).
