TAC: RampUp Bradford Beach

What message are we sending when our public spaces aren't accessible?
Let's change the story, Milwaukee.

Join The Ability Center in making Bradford Beach permanently accessible to everyBODY!


Through our RampUpMKE program, we have developed plans to install a permanent ramp system at Bradford Beach, allowing every member of our community to enjoy a day at the beach, along with the health and happiness that can provide. 

Thanks to initial funding and support from Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele and Milwaukee County Parks, we have a great start – but we still need your support to make it happen. Your donation of any size can help make a positive, lasting impact in the community. 


About RampUp MKE

At the first Ramp Up event in 2015, temporary ramps helped reveal the need to make Bradford Beach accessible to everyone – especially people with disabilities. Watch our short video capturing the event below. 

For once, families and groups of all abilities could play together at the beach, navigate the sand and physically reach the water. 

We now have the opportunity to make this a lifelong reality through the construction of permanent ramps – and you can help.
