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.

Jewish Community Center of San Francisco
Inclusion Manager
San Francisco, CA
After teaching in both San Francisco and Oakland public schools I switched career trajectories and dove into the world of summer camp. The past several years I have worked with the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco to shift the culture of our youth focused programs to a more inclusive model. We currently run an 11 week, fully inclusive summer camp every summer. This year we have officially pushed our inclusive programming out into our after school program. One program at a time we are shifting our culture and programs to be welcoming and supportive of all people who want to participate. My passion is creative problem solving and finding fun ways for more people to be engaged in recreation activities.
