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.

 

 

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 Member & Program Director of Tennessee Disability Pathfinder
