The Intersex Justice Project (IJP) was formed in 2017. IJP was formed in response to a visible lack of intersex people of color in leadership in the United States. IJP started by issuing statements on behalf of intersex people of color for Intersex Awareness Day in 2016. The following year, they decided to protest Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. Their campaign against Lurie Children’s Hospital is the foundation of their work. People follow their campaign using the hashtag #endintersexsurgery. Their mission is: “The Intersex Justice Project (IJP) seeks the end of medically invasive and unnecessary surgeries in the United States that target intersex children and adolescents by empowering intersex people of color to advance that change. IJP is dedicated to the inalienable rights of intersex people of color in the United States, however, we are committed to forming alliances and coalitions with other intersex people of color both nationally and globally.”
