AIC – HEART Training
Date: Saturday, November 5, 2022
American Islamic College in collaboration with HEART Women and Girls is providing city-wide training that will cover topics related to gender-based violence in the Muslim community. Session content includes an enhanced understanding of terminology, barriers to disclosure, Islamic Law, and how to respond appropriately to a disclosure. This training will dive deep into the nuances of Muslim survivorship with a look into gender-based violence from an Islamically-grounded lens.
This workshop has limited seating. It is geared toward those who are in leadership roles in higher education (Title IX coordinator, chaplain, MSA), masjids (Imam, board member, teacher), community centers (coach, teacher, executive leadership), civic organizations (administrator), and other faith-based organizations.
