Campaign For Access

Petition published by The Wheelin Gator on May 09, 2013
168 Signatures 
Target: Everyone including UF Ben Hill Griffin Stadium Facilities Manager

Petition Background (Preamble):

I am proposing a plan to obtain disabled accessible seating in the student section of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Currently, physically disabled students must sit in the accessible seating section for non student fans, including the fans of the opposing team.

A student section at a sporting event is one of the most visible and most vocal sections of the sports crowd. The student section is the most important part of the fan base and provides a significant advantage to the home team. Excluding students from participating in the student section is detrimental to the student's social growth and well being. Similar to students of different race, religion and political beliefs, disabled students suffer significant discrimination in many forms. By not including physically disabled students with their peers, is just one more form of discrimination.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, request the University of Florida provide accessible seating in the student section of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
