It’s great to undo the damage of circumcision and the benefits of foreskin restoration are awesome, but for some the real healing comes from working to end child circumcision. Activists working to protect the right of all boys, girls, and intersex children to remain intact and free of non-therapeutic forced genital cutting are called intactivists. You can help heal humanity – “tikkun olam” in Hebrew.

Get involved. Your voice is needed. Since there’s no money in “doing nothing” to healthy babies, we’ll have a difficult job overwhelming the message of the well-funded and well-positioned status quo.

Participate in recurring events:
– Protest the AAP (pediatrics) convention or the ACOG (obstetrics) convention or the AUA (urology) convention (because these American doctors’ trade associations have not denounced forced genital cutting as their foreign counterparts have)
– March on the US capitol and Whitehouse (because US law protects only girls but leaves boys and intersex children vulnerable)
– March in a human rights parade
