We want MPs to know how important gambling reform is to their community. Together, we can ensure politicians understand how gambling is impacting people and communities.
If you've experienced gambling harm, whether you've gambled yourself or are an impacted family member or friend, raising this issue with a politician is the most powerful way to move them to take action. MPs get lots of statistics and data and meet lots of people. Your story will cut through all that, and reach them where it counts - in their values.
COVID-19 UPDATE: MPs can still be contacted, but face to face meetings are out for a while. However, MPs may have more time for phone or zoom meetings, because they won't be out shaking hands in shopping centres.
There are lots of powerful reasons to contact an MP:
- You can contact an MP to talk about the huge damage gambling harm does to our state, through the $18 million lost to pokies every day of the year in NSW
- Share valuable insights with us, such as which MPs support reform and who we should work with
- You could ask an MP to raise a question in Parliament to get information or speak about the need for real reform
- Ask an MP to support one of our campaigns
We'll be right there with you, and can work with you if this is your first time contacting an MP. We can even link you with someone else whose life has been impacted by gambling and who has experience contacting MPs.
We know politicians can be moved to support gambling reform after hearing from people who've experienced gambling harm. Together, we can make a real difference in NSW Parliament.
