Date and Time: Saturday, August 18, 2018 / 3:00 am – 4:30 am ChST

Futures Without Violence is excited to announce a new safety card available for Muslim youth! The brand new card, Beyond Halal and Haram: Muslims, Sex, and Relationships, is now available to order on our online store.The goal of this safety card is to be both a survivor-centered resource and a useful conversation starter for health care providers, counselors, social workers, mentors, or other adults working with high-school and college-aged Muslim youth who are doing universal education around healthy relationships and assessing for violence.

There is a dearth of resources for American Muslims related to sex and relationships, and some American Muslims may encounter cultural barriers that prevent them from discussing these issues with family and community members. High levels of discrimination against Muslims and Islamophobia also propel the need for more understanding about how to provide trauma-informed, developmentally appropriate, and culturally responsive violence prevention services to this diverse community. Health centers and community-based settings play a crucial role in reaching high school and college-aged American Muslims with messages about healthy and unhealthy relationships.This webinar will describe an evidence-informed universal education intervention on relationships and its impact on health, which can be used in a variety of settings.This intervention features a new safety card specific to American Muslims, which contains information on healthy relationships and sex, guidance and resources for support, how to help a friend, and cultural and religious factors that play into decision-making

This webinar is co-hosted by the National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, HEART Women & Girls, Advocates for Youth, and the Asian Pacific Islander Institute on Gender-Based Violence.
