It’s not just a party. ‘You wanna go where everybody knows your name!’
The TAP is bridging the gap between our friends with disability labels and their communities. When we come together, we ALL change. We party. We make friends. We help each other. We live better.

Making A Way
The TAP Story
A small band of ‘freedom fighters’ descend on a coffee shop on the east side of St. Paul, Minnesota: The TAP.
These included attending friends: County representatives, local community members, other stakeholders, and…our valued friends.
What we found together was empowering.
