About HEART

HEART is the only Muslim-led, national advocacy organization that builds power with survivors, communities, and institutions to advance reproductive justice and uproot gendered violence, by establishing access and choice for the most impacted Muslims.

By offering accurate sexual and reproductive health and gendered violence education, advocacy, research, and training, HEART mobilizes people to become agents of change in their own communities and connects them to a network to sustain their empowerment. HEART’s vision is ambitious: to build a world where all Muslims are safe, can exercise self determination over their reproductive lives, and thrive in the communities they live, work and pray in.

With ongoing programming in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Washington, DC, HEART has experienced rapid growth in the past few years. What began as a local, volunteer-run organization has blossomed into a national movement-focused organization with six paid staff members and a larger network of trainers, volunteers and educators. What makes our team unique is that we are led for and by directly impacted people that represent the communities we serve: we are Muslims, survivors, caregivers, queer and trans, differently abled, people of color working at the intersection of Islam, reproductive justice, and anti-sexual assault advocacy.

Over the years, our in-person programming has reached more than 12,000 people nationally, and over 150,000 people virtually through our videos, toolkits, and publications. Our programming has been the source of healing, support, belonging, and leadership development for many in Muslim communities, especially those living on the margins, including survivors of sexual violence, LGBTQIA+ people, and those who have experienced pregnancy loss.
