Mission

The mission of Attorneys for the Rights of the Child (ARC), founded in 1997, is to bring about an end to all forms of cutting of genitalia of persons other than fully consenting adults. These procedures are commonly referred to as "circumcision" or as "genital mutilation." We carry out our mission through a wide variety of activities including 1) educating the public, medical workers, the judiciary, and legal workers throughout the world regarding the harm caused by male and female genital cutting (MFGC) and the legal and human rights implications of MFGC; 2) responding to requests for information from the public, medical workers, the judiciary, and legal workers regarding MFGC; 3) media work, publications, and speaking engagements designed to provide these groups with up-to-date information regarding MFGC and the legal and human rights implications of MFGC; 4) coordinating, providing support for, tracking of, and direct participation in legal actions to protect children's right to bodily integrity; and a broad range of other activities.
