The Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH) supports the implementation of medically accurate, evidence-informed, age-appropriate, and comprehensive sexual health education in schools that is inclusive and affirming of all sexual identities. Youth have the right to accurate and complete information in order to be able to make informed decisions about their own sexual and reproductive health. MOASH believes sexual health education starts at birth and is a lifelong learning process that respects cultural norms, values, and beliefs.
