2019 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together our constituents to share resources and success stories, learn about field-driven best practices, and network within a community engaged in shared values. The Conference is attended by passionate leaders, experts, and advocates from every corner of the disability community. Conference attendees are influential in their fields and communities, and play an important role in the provision of services and supports for the millions of individuals and organizations around the world; and include professors and researchers from leading institutions; those involved in local, state, and federal governments and public policy; special and general educators, and school administrators; self-advocates, adult service providers; students, family members, and many others.  This year’s conference theme, Building Diverse and Inclusive Communities, reminds us that equity, opportunity, and inclusion relies on the input of broad perspectives and experiences.

Limited Capacity filling up

Project ACTION! is a regional self-advocacy coalition of adults with developmental disabilities that has been active for over 30 years in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. Since their inception, Project ACTION! has focused on "Building Diverse and Inclusive Communities" for the people they advocate with to have their voices heard and interests represented. The Project ACTION! presenters will share how they have successfully advocated for change in the government system that provides their disability supports over the years. The presenters will share how they choose to work with non-disability coalitions and other groups to ensure they have a seat at the table. They will talk about the importance and impact of cross-collaboration so even more people will know about the needs of people with disabilities.
