Report on Circumcision in Canada Submitted to United Nations

In July 2018, an international team submitted to the United Nations a report on circumcision as a human rights violation, capping nearly two full years of work. The team, the International NGO Council on Genital Autonomy, is intervening as a third party non-governmental organization. This particular report focuses on Canada and will shortly be posted to the ARC website. The submission of this report was shortly followed by some very sad news. As previously reported, one of the team's core members and most active participants was my friend Paul Mason, who sadly passed away recently. Attached also is a picture of four team members, Antony Lempert, Avshalom Zoossmann-Diskin, Steven Svoboda, and Paul Mason, taken on May 7, 2018 at Steven's home following the Symposium. In addition to these four, Kira Antinuk, James Chegwidden, Lena Nyhus, and Tim Hammond also co-authored the report.
