2016 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference strengthens the disability field by connecting attendees to innovative information and resources, facilitating connections between stakeholders within the disability movement, and helping attendees reignite their passion for an inclusive world. This year’s conference theme, “Gateway to Equity,” explores inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs, in living a fair, just, and balanced life.

Limited Capacity seats available

In St. Louis we are working to build what my team has called the second wave of the disability rights movement, a movement of full inclusion.   This session will  focus on providing real-life tools to take a community leader from thinking as an activist/self advocate to thinking as an organizer. In the process the presenters will highlight real work that happened all over the greater St. Louis region by adopting the method that says "all people no matter what their background or perceived ability can A. be activists and B. become organizers".   This presentation will show what happens when you really put the power in the hands of the people. And will give practical tools to folks that aren't organizing in this way to begin to do so.
