TASH is a national organization that advocates for human rights and inclusion for people with significant disabilities and support needs – those most vulnerable to segregation, abuse, neglect and institutionalization. TASH works to advance inclusive communities through advocacy, research, professional development, policy, and information and resources for parents, families and self-advocates.
SLN members attended and presented at the TASH Conference on December 12th in Chicago, IL. Pat Carver, Angela Martin, Katie Arnold, and Meghan Burke presented “The SIBLING Movement: Uniquely Positioned and Growing” to a full room of attendees. A great discussion ensued about ways to engage siblings in the larger disability movement.
Also, a lot of people were interested in getting more involved in the work of the SLN—there are a number of committees that anyone is welcome to volunteer to participate in, including Research, Policy & Advocacy, Services & Supports, and Communications. Check out how you could get more involved.
