Zero Population Growth of Los Angeles, Inc. (1960-1989) | Special Collections & Archives

Name: Zero Population Growth of Los Angeles, Inc. (1960-1989)


Historical Note:

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.

Zero Population Growth, Inc. was concerned with  larger issues relating directly to population numbers such as abortion, teen pregnancy, immigration, family planning, and birth control. The organization is also interested in issues which are seen as direct consequences of the country's growing population. Environmental issues such as nuclear power, wilderness and coastal preservation, pollution, air quality, and zoning controls are among those issues ZPG links with population explosion.

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 also coordinates their efforts with other population and environmental groups like Planned Parenthood and The Sierra Club.
