Tennessee Allies in Self Advocacy (TASA)

TASA provides a forum for members to discuss the strengths and challenges that individuals with disabilities experience in becoming self‐advocates in an effort to create better access to the resources and support they need to become self-advocates.


TASA Survey

We want to know what people, like you, need and want TASA to do to support more individuals with disabilities in becoming self-advocates. Your feedback will make a big difference in the future work of TASA. Please take a few moments to complete this survey.



What is Self-Advocacy?

“Self-advocacy is a process of speaking up for oneself and being empowered to express one’s own needs, goals, and desires. Moving beyond that, it is learning how to speak up for others.”

~Megan Hart, TASA Co-Chair
