Hats off to Abilities United. The Media Center Web Link has partnered with the AU since 2007 and we have co-produced with them 10 TV shows about their illustrious work and contribution to our community. Here is the most recent production in honor of their 50th!

This was an extraordinary event to which I wish all of Palo Alto area had been in attendance. It made us proud of who Abilities United has become in the past 50 years. The next 50 years will show how we are growing in our inclusiveness of those who have many abilities despite the fact that they may also have a disability. We praise Abilities United and all those who also believe that our participants are just like you and me. Thanks to all those who have helped to put us on the map as an agency to follow. www.abilitiesunited.org
