WASHINGTON, DC - Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14) joined with Rep. Joseph Crowley (NY-07), Rep. Nita Lowey (NY-18) and well-known family planning grassroots activists today to announce the kickoff of the 218 Votes campaign to resume U.S. payments to the United Nations family planning fund (UNFPA). The group is working to corral a majority of the Members of Congress, 218, to keep an amendment in the State Department authorization bill that would reinstate UNFPA funding, which de-funded by the Bush Administration. Joining the Members were Jane Roberts and Lois Abraham, two women who last year spontaneously started 34 Million Friends, a group that aims to collect $34 million in $1 increments from individuals in order to fill the gap left by the lack of U.S. contributions.
