Kelly Floyd

Manager of Community Programs
Kelly Floyd
Kelly Floyd began working with Intact America in 2022 after speaking at the 16th International Symposium in Atlanta, GA. where she presented her essay “Scarring Innocence.” Kelly encouraged intactivists to assert their objective moral authority as the primary justification for their ethical stance on the genital cutting of infants, rather than the deconstruction of pseudoscientific and religious myth. She received her Bachelor’s in Journalism from Georgia State University in 2021 and completed a marketing internship with FAIR, The Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism, in the summer of 2022.

She contributed to setting the foundation for FAIR’s organizational club presence on college campuses across the country and the distribution of FAIRstory curriculum to schools. As Community Programs Manager, Kelly works to nurture the relationships between intactivists and the general population, as well as build up Intact America’s supporter base through strategic campaign initiatives, institutional accountability driven programs, and donor outreach. Her goal is to unite people of varying beliefs, cultures, and identities to work together and abolish child genital cutting, which she believes has detrimental consequences for the entire human collective.

Manager of Communications & Marketing
Patrick Montanaro
Although professional untangler isn’t a particularly legitimate job title, it does describe the nuance of what I do at Intact America. Every organization is made up of communication lines. You can imagine them like the long strands of Christmas lights that get boxed up and bunched every year. A great organization has clear communication paths, but sometimes those paths get all looped and knotted. My job is to do my professional untangling and make sure the red bulb isn’t cracked, or the wires aren’t tied together, or the plug isn’t overheating. To really bring this Christmas lights metaphor full circle, I essentially want to make all parts of Intact America shine.

But first – the untangling. I will also be handling most of the social media, the newsletter, and a few special projects. If you happen to be at some of the events that Intact America has a presence at, I will probably be there too. If you see me, come and say hi! Tell me about yourself. We can discuss the greatest American folk singer (spoiler: it’s Jim Croce) and share sauce-making secrets. It’s a great pleasure to be at Intact America!

Marilyn Fayre Milos, multiple award winner for her humanitarian work to end routine infant circumcision in the United States and advocating for the rights of infants and children to genital autonomy, has written a warm and compelling memoir of her path to becoming “the founding mother of the intactivist movement.” Needing to support her family as a single mother in the early sixties, Milos taught banjo—having learned to play from Jerry Garcia (later of The Grateful Dead)—and worked as an assistant to comedian and social critic Lenny Bruce, typing out the content of his shows and transcribing court proceedings of his trials for obscenity. After Lenny’s death, she found her voice as an activist as part of the counterculture revolution, living in Haight Ashbury in San Francisco during the 1967 Summer of Love, and honed her organizational skills by creating an alternative education open classroom (still operating) in Marin County. 

After witnessing the pain and trauma of the circumcision of a newborn baby boy when she was a nursing student at Marin College, Milos learned everything she could about why infants were subjected to such brutal surgery. The more she read and discovered, the more convinced she became that circumcision had no medical benefits. As a nurse on the obstetrical unit at Marin General Hospital, she committed to making sure parents understood what circumcision entailed before signing a consent form. Considered an agitator and forced to resign in 1985, she co-founded NOCIRC (National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers) and began organizing international symposia on circumcision, genital autonomy, and human rights. Milos edited and published the proceedings from the above-mentioned symposia and has written numerous articles in her quest to end circumcision and protect children’s bodily integrity. She currently serves on the board of directors of Intact America.


Georganne Chapin is a healthcare expert, attorney, social justice advocate, and founding executive director of Intact America, the nation’s most influential organization opposing the U.S. medical industry’s penchant for surgically altering the genitals of male children (“circumcision”). Under her leadership, Intact America has definitively documented tactics used by U.S. doctors and healthcare facilities to pathologize the male foreskin, pressure parents into circumcising their sons, and forcibly retract the foreskins of intact boys, creating potentially lifelong, iatrogenic harm. 

Chapin holds a BA in Anthropology from Barnard College, and a Master’s degree in Sociomedical Sciences from Columbia University. For 25 years, she served as president and chief executive officer of Hudson Health Plan, a nonprofit Medicaid insurer in New York’s Hudson Valley. Mid-career, she enrolled in an evening law program, where she explored the legal and ethical issues underlying routine male circumcision, a subject that had interested her since witnessing the aftermath of the surgery conducted on her younger brother. She received her Juris Doctor degree from Pace University School of Law in 2003, and was subsequently admitted to the New York Bar. As an adjunct professor, she taught Bioethics and Medicaid and Disability Law at Pace, and Bioethics in Dominican College’s doctoral program for advanced practice nurses.

In 2004, Chapin founded the nonprofit Hudson Center for Health Equity and Quality, a company that designs software and provides consulting services designed to reduce administrative complexities, streamline and integrate data collection and reporting, and enhance access to care for those in need. In 2008, she co-founded Intact America.

Chapin has published many articles and op-ed essays, and has been interviewed on local, national and international television, radio and podcasts about ways the U.S. healthcare system prioritizes profits over people’s basic needs. She cites routine (nontherapeutic) infant circumcision as a prime example of a practice that wastes money and harms boys and the men they will become. This Penis Business: A Memoir is her first book.
