Clubs and pubs are the lifeblood of our communities. They are where we gather to socialise, have a meal, catch up with friends and family, and they will be essential for rebuilding communities on the other side of this crisis.
But they aren’t all inclusive and inviting spaces. Clubs and pubs with poker machines are the antithesis of community connection. They cause harm, isolate and divide families, place workers at risk, and drain the local economy.
Poker machines do not bring people together, they drive them apart. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
#BuildBackBetter is our vision to rebuild a vibrant and thriving community clubs and pub sector for Australians to return to post COVID-19. It is about ensuring we all have a safe place to connect without fear of being preyed upon by poker machines.
We have a range of campaigns under way to endure that we build back better. Scroll down to find something that appeals to you. Every signature, every letter, every call builds pressure.
Even if you don't live in NSW or Victoria, you can show solidarity by adding your action to pressure decision makers in these states.
