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.

Raquel is a lifelong disability advocate. Having grown up with several relatives with disabilities, her commitment to disability advocacy deepened in 2002 while providing direct supports to adults with significant disabilities, many of whom were previously institutionalized. She went on to advise Project ACTION!, the self-advocacy coalition of Washington, DC, and later shifted the scope of her advocacy work to the national level, previously with TASH and currently with the National Disability Rights Network. The eldest sibling of a man with cerebral palsy, Raquel is a founding member of DC Metro Sibs, an informal support group for adult siblings with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She received her BA in Disability Studies from the City University of New York, and her MS in Nonprofit Management from Our Lady of the Lake University.
