Gambling is a nation-wide problem but its impacts hurt communities the most.
We need action on all levels. We need our councils opposing pokie applications, our state institutions intervening to prevent pokie numbers increasing, our federal politicians acting to restrict the gambling industry and our footy clubs and hotels ending their reliance on pokies for revenue.
The conversation in this country is shifting and we want to keep building that momentum. Gambling reform will happen when communities around the country work together to tell our politicians that we don't want pokies in our pubs, we don't want gambling ads on our tvs and we don't want our kids exposed to gambling from a young age.
We are empowering local communities around Australia to take back control and tell their leaders they want to stay pokie-free. Find the resources for community actions here and join the fight! If your community is being harmed by pokies: contact us!
