About Us

Population Connection Action Fund is:

  • Raising awareness of the need to stabilize world population at a level that can be sustained by Earth’s resources;
  • Fighting to ensure that everyone in the world has access to comprehensive reproductive health care, including the full range of contraceptives and safe abortion care;
  • 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 $1.74 billion a year, including $116 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 via the Abortion is Health Care Everywhere Act, which would repeal the Helms Amendment.
