Bucks add devoted ADA platform to Deer District after man in wheelchair had hassle seeing playoff sport
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – When the Milwaukee Bucks learned that a fan using a wheelchair was having trouble seeing the game on the big screens during the playoffs, they took quick action to correct the problem.
According to a press release recently, a man using a wheelchair went to the Deer District to watch the Bucks play in the playoffs. He couldn’t see the screens because of the crowd standing and cheering in the way.
The news release said Brian Peters, director of advocacy at Independence First, went straight to the Milwaukee Bucks to tell them about the problem.
It didn’t take long for the Bucks to respond.
“Literally within five days of my email, they have now set up an ADA watch party platform with a dedicated staff member to ensure it is used for people with mobility disabilities,” said Peters.
Independence First said in its publication: “Now EVERYONE has the chance to cheer on the fabulous Bucks!”
