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.

The "Love Shouldn't Hurt" workshop will address the issues of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of the aging and disabled populations- two of the most vulnerable segments of our society. The workshop will present statistics to show the prevalence of these issues and how they impact survivors and families. The participants will be given information on how to recognize abuse and potential abusers. They will also be provided with information on how to find resources to help themselves or the victims. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a special, creative, empowerment project.
