Our Mission

By on .

OII-USA promotes human rights for all intersex people, particularly the right to self-determination and bodily integrity. We strive to create a world where intersex people are viewed and treated equally by:

  • providing information concerning actual life experiences of intersex individuals, and the goals of the global intersex advocacy community,  to all those working with intersex people;
  • supporting intersex individuals by providing information and contact with other intersex people from various groups and geographical regions; and
  • assisting families and friends of intersex individuals  in their role as allies, and in understanding intersex variations.
