Circumcision & Bodily Autonomy
May 9 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Sunday Assembly Detroit is a secular congregation that meets to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate the wonder of life. It’s a service for anyone who wants to live better, help often, and wonder more.
This free event is online. All you need is an internet connection to join us, all are welcome!
We don’t have clergy, instead we have local community leaders and thinkers. Brendon Marotta is the guest speaker for our May Assembly, addressing the dangers of circumcision and the coalition to ban the practice in America. Brendon is a filmmaker, author, and public speaker. In 2017, he completed American Circumcision, his first feature-length documentary as director, which won multiple awards at film festivals, toured across the country, and played on Netflix. The film is currently available on Vimeo, Amazon, and iTunes. Brendon has spoken across the world at multiple conferences including the International Congress for Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology, International Conference on Men’s Issues, and International Symposium on Genital Autonomy and Children’s Rights.

We are a radically inclusive community and we welcome our LGBTQIA+ brothers, sisters, and siblings. We will have material supplied from Affirmations on our welcome table along with free prophylactics and feminine hygiene products.
We also welcome everyone along the secular/religious spectrum. Whatever your degree of religion, spirituality, or utter lack thereof you are welcome here. As an organization, we don’t do religious, spiritual, or supernatural things, but we won’t tell you you’re wrong if you do.
We can’t wait to see you!
If you’re looking for an inviting and positive community, you’ve come to the right place. We look forward to getting to know you if you’re new and welcoming you back home if you’ve been before.
