CHANGE advocates for increased funding of voluntary family planning programs and services, exposes the detrimental effects of funding restrictions through face-to-face meetings between policy makers and women from Africa, Latin America, and Asia and trains and mobilizes U.S. grassroots leaders to be a voice for change in U.S. foreign policy debates that affect sexual and reproductive health and rights.
