So, on a small scale, what is the best avenue of intactivism?
I am a SAHM, with limited financial resources.
Need some advice for those experienced, and I'm sure it would help a lot of others, as well.
Write letters to the editor when a particularly good or bad article or TV news story is written. A lot of the ones that come out are brought to our attention on this board. Letters are powerful, the more the better!
Yes, the medical/birth professionals in my area- those are the first I want to target... I think DOC will send them info for me if I give them the address.
I am alumni at the college, DH works at the public library. I am hoping they will buy copies of the PBS documentary Whose Body? Whose Rights?... The college especially, they have a foreign/artsy film thing everymonth, and I'm going to request they show this.
I am a "not working" artist, and I am really thinking of having a soft sculpture exhibit of genitalia-- I believe there are slots for alumni in the gallery.
I'm just trying to think of all the different avenues I can go with.
Does anyone have a standard "letter" that they send out to editors, congressmen, all that jazz?
A recent powerful film called "Cut" about a young orthodox Jew exploring and rejecting circumcision. Not just the religious part both the social and medical part. 70 min. NOw available on DVD. See the trailer and order here:
This was originally shown at the Hillel house at the University of CHicago a year ago, and has had a few other public showings. It would be great to show it on a campus, especially if you can do some good advertising and are prepared to runa a comment or panel section. And have genital integrity handouts available. Your position in the college and library could be very helpful.
