Local to Global Justice is in its 6th year of sponsoring workshops and information tables devoted to various aspects of justice throughout the world, as it is found or not found.
This year NOCIRC/NOHARMM/NORM of Phoenix has been invited to participate with an hour-long workshop which explores male/female genital mutilation in the 21st Century United States, especially as it affects immigrants and the one million American infants who must submit to the procedure each year. The workshop will focus on new research which illustrates anatomical and functional characteristics of the intact penis. Emphasis will be given to the clash of cultures in which immigrants unfamiliar with American practices are suddently confronted with the necessity of making a decision ... either to circumcise their newborn infant boy ... or NOT to circumcise their young daughter.
