On Labor Day, activists gathered at Improving Birth rallies across the country to advocate for evidence-based maternity care. Bay Area Intactivists sponsored a booth at the Improving Birth rally in Walnut Creek to provide resources on the proper care of genitally intact boys as well as literature covering the damage caused by routine infant circumcision. Additionally, Bay Area Intactivists member Jonathon Conte gave a brief talk about infant circumcision as part of the rally's program.
