Stand with Friends of UNFPA and sign our petition requesting that Congress fund UNFPA in FY 2013 at full and robust levels. UNFPA provides life-saving services to women, children and families around the world, but the U.S. contribution to this vital work has been steadily declining. Sign the petition today requesting full and robust funding for UNFPA in FY 2013!

Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, accelerates progress towards universal access to sexual and reproductive health, including voluntary family planning and safe motherhood. It also advances the rights and opportunities of young people. UNFPA is on the ground improving lives in more than 140 countries, yet the scope of its reach will dwindle without strong U.S. support.

The annual U.S. contribution to UNFPA continues to decrease, but the needs of women and girls around the world have not subsided. Fund UNFPA in FY2013 at full and robust levels, and help UNFPA continue working to ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect.
