interACT uses innovative legal and other strategies, to advocate for the human rights of children born with intersex traits. When interACT was founded, other organizations already existed that focused on peer support for parents and/or intersex adults, on political activism and awareness-building, on promoting research, and on advocacy in the medical community. Awareness of the legal questions surrounding children with intersex traits was beginning to grow, but no organization had undertaken legal advocacy on behalf of these children. Recognizing the importance and power of youth advocates, and with seed money from the Ms. Foundation in 2011, AIC started “inter/ACT”, a youth-led advocacy program for intersex teens and twenty-somethings to come together, share experiences and raise intersex awareness. interACT remains committed to advancing this discussion with a sense of respect and compassion for the children, parents, doctors and intersex adults involved. interACT offers information, resources and a list of support and advocacy organizations.
