While TAASCON is free to attend, it is strongly recommended that students register as soon as possible.
The theme for TAASCON 2018 is Resisting, Reclaiming, Reconciling. There comes a time in many of our lives when we begin to resist the pressures imposed upon us by society as well as question the validity of our own actions onto other marginalized groups. But through this process, we start to reclaim our identities and cultivate a community built around empathy, compassion, and change. And only by delving into and reconciling with our histories -- coming to terms with not only our oppressions, but also our privileges -- can we begin to understand our anger, our empowerment, and everything in between.
Resisting: the oppressions we receive and imposeReclaiming: the identities we discover and developReconciling: the histories we experience and learn
