The Los Angeles chapter of Zero
Population Growth (ZPG) was established in 1978. ZPG of Los Angeles' educational
activities include letter writing campaigns, donation of radio air time for public
service announcements and programs, and speeches given to community groups, high schools
and colleges. ZPG has also sponsored special events such as "Love Carefully
Day" and "National Condom Week" and outreach programs on family planning
and O.P.T.I.O.N.S. (Options to Pregnancy-Teen Information on Sexuality.) ZPG coordinates
their efforts with other population and environmental groups like Planned Parenthood and
The Sierra Club. The records of ZPG of Los Angeles document the activities, events,
programs, and policies of Zero Population Growth, Inc., as well as providing information
regarding a broad variety of social and environmental problems associated with continued
increases in population.
Zero Population Growth (ZPG) was formed in 1968. The organization has affiliations on
the national level in Washington, D.C., as well as state organizations which coordinate
the actions of the local chapters. Zero Population Growth of California was incorporated
in 1971. The Los Angeles chapter of this grass roots organization was established seven
years later, in 1978.
