The tremendous interest generated by the Day of 5 Billion on 11 July 1987 led to the establishment of World Population Day as an annual event. For more than 20 years, 11 July has been an occasion to mark the significance of population trends and related issues.
In 2011, the world population surpassed 7 billion, UNFPA and partners launched a campaign called 7 Billion Actions. It aims to engage people, spur commitment and spark actions related to the opportunities and challenges presented by a world of 7 billion people.
In many ways a world of 7 billion is an achievement: Globally, people are living longer and healthier lives, and couples are choosing to have fewer children. However, because so many couples are in, or will soon be entering, their reproductive years, the world population is projected to increase for decades to come. Meeting the needs of current and future generations presents daunting challenges.
Whether we can live together equitably on a healthy planet will depend on the choices and decisions we make now. In a world of 7 billion people, and counting, we need to count each other.

We are made up of pro-choice women and men across the United States. Together, we're protecting and expanding reproductive freedom.
How do we support the right to choose, exactly?
·                                 We lobby Congress to convince your elected representatives to support your right to choose.
·                                 We organize women and men to make sure that lawmakers hear from the pro-choice people they represent.
·                                 We connect what happens in Congress or in the states to how it affects your ability to make private decisions, like choosing legal abortion.
·                                 We work with our state affiliates to advance ideas that are good for women's freedom. We fight back against the bad ideas that threaten our privacy.
·                                 NARAL Pro-Choice America uses the political process to elect lawmakers who share our pro-choice values and defeat candidates who don't.
We are passionate about our work—and we couldn't do our job without the great people who stand with us.
That's why Fortune Magazine has described NARAL Pro-Choice America as "one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America."
