2017 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, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

As a sibling of a sister with a disability, I will share my story of growing up as a sister and my sister's perspective of living with a disability. My storytelling piece will capture the challenging questions faced to me, my other siblings, and my sister, and the emerged answers that shed light on the only life we know. The experiences shared will reflect how the power of one individual can evolve oneself and others to be influencers of change for equity, opportunity, and inclusion.
