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.

Raquel is a lifelong disability advocate. Having grown up with several relatives with disabilities, her commitment to disability advocacy deepened in 2002 while providing direct supports to adults with significant disabilities, many of whom were previously institutionalized. She went on to advise Project ACTION!, the self-advocacy coalition of Washington, DC, and later shifted the scope of her advocacy work to the national level, previously with TASH and currently with the National Disability Rights Network. The eldest sibling of a man with cerebral palsy, Raquel is a founding member of DC Metro Sibs, an informal support group for adult siblings with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She received her BA in Disability Studies from the City University of New York, and her MS in Nonprofit Management from Our Lady of the Lake University.
