I'll be going and presenting. I hope many of you will be able to come. Since Seattle is generally a low circ area today, I trust we will have great attendance.

I'll be there and some of our other Canadian activists from Vancouver, BC are coming, too. Super excited to meet all my heroes.

Mine is Winning and Losing on the Circuit. The time has been revised, I understand, and I will be speaking from about 9:50 to 10:10 a.m. on Saturday, August 26.

Y'know, I've never actually been to an event like this before....


Has anyone gone to one of the symposiums before? What type of people generally attend? Is there a lot of medical professionals, or more Intactivists from all career types, or a balance of both?

Are all of the talks lecture-style? Is the atmosphere relaxed and friendly or more formal & stuffy?

thanks for giving this the bump, Kira. Time to get your money in before the end of July. That's the cutoff for the lower rate. This is going to be a truly history making event. If you want to be part of the miracle of ending circumcision, sooner not later, be there.

Don't let money stop you! Write to NOCIRC and create a payment plan.

This conference is going to be amazing. There will be a tribute to Jeannine Parvati Baker who died at the beginning of this year. The closing speaker will be Suzanne Arms, author of Immaculate Deception. It will be a shot heard round the world for ending circumcision. Baybee

I was planning on going, but with all we have on our plate right now I just don't think it's going to happen. But I'm excited to hear from you who are able to go.

I spoke to her on the phone a few months before she died. She was amazing.
