Roberts and Lois Abraham established 34 Million Friends of UNFPA in 2002 when the Bush Administration first announced it would withhold the $34 million that Congress allocated to the fund.
UNFPA helps the most vulnerable women in the world plan their families, give birth safely, and protect themselves from HIV/AIDS. It encourages equal access to food, education, and health care.
Roberts will speak about her fund-raising work, travels on behalf of UNFPA, and issues of population and the planet.
