There is a dire need for open conversation in Muslim communities about sex, sexual abuse, and consent. Additionally, it is crucial to be able to build awareness in the community in order to be able to create spaces where individuals can come together and speak openly and honestly about sex and sexual abuse, in a way that is free of blame and shame, and in a way that empowers them with the tools they need for informed sexual health decision making.

HEART Women & Girls is implementing an interactive training for youth ages 16-25 to come together to understand the sexual and reproductive health needs of Muslim communities. Topics of conversation will include sexual health, sexual health decision-making, and how to be a resource for others.

Dates: Sunday, July 30
Time: 11:00a-1:00p
Where: Islamic Society of West Valley

Age Range: Youth 16-25
Facilitators: Sahar Pirzada and Syed Hussaini
