Organization Background: interACT: Advocates for Intersex Youth is a national nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to raising intersex visibility, empowering young intersex advocates and promoting laws and policies that protect intersex youth. (Intersex describes a person born with one of more physical sex characteristics that don’t match up with what is typically thought of as either “male” or “female”.)

Nearly 2% of the population is born with intersex traits and historically intersex babies and youth have been subjected to medically unnecessary intervention (like cosmetic genital surgeries) without their consent in attempt to fit them into binary notions of male or female sex.

interACT is a 501(c) 3 incorporated in CA and is over 12 years old. It is the largest organization in the world dedicated to fighting for the human right of bodily autonomy and decision making power for all intersex youth. Our small staff works from remote home offices in various U.S. locations and our Executive Director works from Sudbury, MA.
