preserving the civil rights of children born with variations of sex anatomy

Advocates for Informed Choice (AIC) was founded in 2006 through an Equal Justice Works Fellowship and continued with an Echoing Green Fellowship, AIC is the first, and only, organization in the U.S. to undertake a coordinated strategy of legal advocacy for the rights of children with intersex conditions or DSDs (differences of sex development).

AIC uses innovative legal strategies to advocate for the civil rights of children born with variations of reproductive or sexual anatomy.

Our project:

  • engages parents, doctors, attorneys and intersex activists in strategy discussions;
  • stimulates legal dialogue about the fundamental rights of children born with intersex conditions or DSDs; and
  • employs traditional and non-traditional legal tools to ensure justice for children born with intersex conditions or DSDs.

These activities are grounded in a sense of respect and compassion for the children, parents, doctors, and intersex adults involved.
