On June 17, the TASH Board of Directors, along with advocates from across the country, will gather on Capitol Hill to hear from disability champions in Congress and meet with U.S. senate and house offices. We’ll be asking Congress to take action on the following priorities:
• Restraint and seclusion prevention in public schools
• The right to save assets for future goals
• Access to employment opportunities
• Passage of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
There is strength in numbers, and we’re asking you to join us in this effort!
Beginning May 8, TASH will lead a series of six training sessions to build capacity and confidence in being an effective advocate. All training sessions will be held at 5 p.m. ET on the following days: May 8, 15, 22, 29 and June 5 and 12 (all on Thursdays). Though live trainings offer a rich media experience with the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback, all sessions will be archived and available to view 24/7 via Adobe Connect.
