Stand up for Women!
Minister for Gaming, Marlene Kairouz MP &
Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Natalie Hutchins MP,
Your weak pokies policy is undermining your efforts to reduce family violence.
Recent research has found that families hurt by gambling are three times more likely to experience family violence.
Your proposed pokies policy would mean we can't reduce the number of poker machines for 20 years, allows dangerous 'cashless' gambling and keeps open the loophole that allows cash out in pokie dens. That will increase gambling harm, and exacerbate family violence.
This is an issue that falls under your portfolios and you need to stand up for women!
Don't miss the opportunity to delay the pokies legislation until it is amended with stong policy that reduces gambling harm and family violence.
Stand up for women, against gambling harm and family violence!
