PennTASH to Host Mini-Symposium Series

PennTASH to host the Pennhurst traveling exhibit this fallClick To TweetPennsylvania TASH LogoThis October 27th, Pennsylvania TASH will premiere a new presentation from its “PennTASH Mini-Symposium Series.”  Entitled, Pennhurst – Pennsylvania’s Tragedy, Triumph, and Unfinished Business, the Pittsburgh event will feature the Pennhurst Memorial & Preservation Alliance’s popular traveling exhibit, “The Pennhurst Story ─ From Tragedy to Civil Rights.” This will mark the first time the popular exhibit banners will be displayed in western Pennsylvania, following over twenty tours to international and national conferences (including the 2015 TASH Conference in Portland) and various venues across the state.

Hosted at the prestigious Duquesne Club, the event will be a localized call to action because, despite Pennhurst’s historic civil rights achievements for people with disabilities, institutions still continue to operate in Pennsylvania and across the nation. It is with great pride that we also look forward to welcoming our specially honored guest, TASH’s new Executive Director, Ruthie-Marie Beckwith.

Current PennTASH members, please RSVP by September 30th to Ellen at Be sure to place “Mini-Symposium RSVP” in the subject line along with your full name.
