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.

Limited Capacity seats available

Project ACTION! is a successful established self-advocacy group in Washington, DC. Current leaders realized that there needed to be many more self-advocacy leaders if they were going to address all of the issues they hear about at meetings AND if they were going to create needed changes. Therefore, they developed a 6-month leadership training program and recruited current and potential members interested in taking charge of their lives and making changes that are important to them. Sessions focused on Finding Your Voice, Identifying Issues that are Important to You, Taking Charge of Your Life, Running and Participating in Meetings, Serving on Boards, Talking So That People Will Listen, and the many roles played by self-advocates. This session will review the fun interactive training, with role-playing so that people can practice and learn in safe non-threatening ways, pairing new and experienced self-advocates to build skills and confidence.
