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.

(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.
