Anna and Ghassan

Both Anna and Ghassan  are human rights advocates, lawyers, and long-time allies of the intersex community.  Each has worked alongside intersex organizations and community members to successfully develop invaluable legislative proposals and policies.  Most importantly, these proposals and policies spell the end of medically unnecessary surgeries on intersex infants which is performed without consent.
