The​ ​Michigan​ ​Organization​ ​on​ ​Adolescent​ ​Sexual​ ​Health​ ​(MOASH)​ ​supports​ ​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.
