2018 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

Total Living Concept (TLC), a non profit in Kent, WA, participated in an amazing journey, titled, Compliance to Alliance, developed by Jennifer White and taught by Jennifer White and Amelia Pineda-Gross. TLC is a service organization assisting people who experience ID/DD with living a full life, obtaining meaningful employment and becoming valued members of the local community. As an agency, TLC is person centered and equity focused but we were missing so many things. Jennifer and Amelia introduced a very focused social justice lens, giving a brighter perspective and many tools to provide supports for a higher level of independence and engagement for the person in their life. Come hear about our journey and the radical differences we have been able to see in people's lives. We will share video presentations from the people who are living the experience and discuss our progress in this journey. We are committed to using this lens for the whole agency.
