Extra Swim Class At City Heights YMCA Becomes Gender, Immigrant Issue

I am ecstatic that in my community there is FINALLY an avenue for Muslim women to swim and workout. This is a great start! I recently worked for a large community center that refused to offers these gender specific classes. I can only assume that the backlash played a major part in lack of effort at the request of the community. I am not Muslim, however, have a good relationship with many of the families in my community. The kids' moms were always asking me to start a petition so they could take a Yoga class. Good for you YMCA! Good for us as a community!
