Ability Media

Launched at Quinnipiac University's School of Communications (Hamden, Connecticut), Ability Media answers to a crucial gap in journalism and media: "the lack of representation of people with different abilities in the content and in jobs." Millions of individuals have a disability, yet "less than two percent of the film and TV workforce is disabled." Led by Emmy-winning sports journalist Dave Stevens, Ability Media is correcting this lack of representation and ensuring that people with different abilities are fully represented, both in the content and creation of media stories. The Home page highlights recent stories from Ability Media and links to the group's YouTube channel. Though the organization is relatively new, readers will still find plenty of archived offerings to enjoy. The Content tab categorizes materials by medium. Readers will find written articles, videos, a photo gallery, and two podcasts, Behind the Mind (focused on mental health) and Different Lights (dedicated to challenging misconceptions about people with disabilities). Additionally, the Resources tab lists a network of like-minded organizations providing "the latest disability related news."
