Access to Services
The Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH) supports and advocates for unrestricted access to safe, legal, and affordable healthcare services for adolescents in accordance with federal law. It is the right of all people, including young people, to have the tools necessary to control their sexual and reproductive health. Often youth are disproportionally impacted by the challenges (finances, transportation, insurance, proximity to quality care facilities, provider competence and support, etc.) that most people face in seeking care, and they also face unique challenges as minors regarding confidentiality and parental consent.

Washtenaw County Community Conversations
MOASH is working alongside the Michigan Department of Education, the Neutral Zone, the University of Michigan Spectrum Center, and Springmatter to implement the Washtenaw County Community Conversations (WC3) program. Among other objectives, the program seeks to develop and implement community workshops in each of the nine Washtenaw County school districts in order to raise awareness of the needs of LGBTQ+ students. The goal of these workshops is to increase sexual orientation and gender identity awareness, knowledge, and allyship skills among community members.
