The Federation of Muslim Women received a grant from the Heart and Stroke Foundation to determine whether there is a need to increase accessibility to physical activities and facilities for young Muslim girls and women.
Please sign the petition below if you support this initiative. Each signature on this petition will assist us to influence polices in community centres, schools, and physical activity facilities to provide programs for young Muslim girls and women.
Young Muslim girls and women in Mississauga would like the opportunity to be more physically active at facilities which are accessible to them, such as community centres, schools and facilities.
Accessibility is defined as:
- Providing womens-only times and spaces for physical activity which are central, convenient and frequent
- Arranging for privacy for women who would like to participate in these program
- Creating programming for young Muslim women in an accessible format
We, the undersigned, request greater accessibility to facilities to enable young Muslim women to participate in fitness activities.
