Jane Roberts and Lois Abraham founded 34 Million Friends of UNFPA in 2002 when the Bush Administration first announced they would withhold the $34 million that Congress allocated to the United Nations Population Fund. To this day, over $125 million dollars in US dues to the UNFPA remains unpaid.

The idea behind this project is to ask 34 million Americans to donate at least $1 and in turn, send a message that Americans support UNFPA.

Jane Roberts told Jerome all about her her plan to help save women's lives.
