Take Action: Demand Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation

February 6 is International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). 15 states in the U.S. still do not have any laws protecting girls from this child abuse. With the federal law in legal limbo, we cannot waste one more day. Today, we are calling on our supporters in the 15 states to demand their legislators prioritize women and girls in their state by banning this practice. Legislators tell us that hearing from their constituents matters. They want to hear from you! Find sample letter templates and your legislators below if you live in one of the states who lacks laws. Take five minutes and speak up for the girls who are voiceless.

    We had work to do, clearly. How about it, Tulsi Gabbard? Bernie Sanders?

    Stop FGM in all of the world, not just USA. What an inhuman and barbaric practice. It must be stopped!
