The Australian Christian Lobby encourages its supporters to get behind a campaign to bring gambling reform to the national attention.
As part of the Alliance for Gambling Reform, the ACL has been advocating on behalf of Australians who realise the serious impact gambling has on individuals, their families and the community.
The political parties need to take the issue seriously and take immediate steps to reduce the harm that gambling brings on our community.
The Productivity Commission estimates that around half a million people are seriously harmed or at risk from poker machines. It is an indictment on all of us that Australia has 20 per cent of the worlds poker machines
To that end, please take a few minutes to write a letter to your local candidate ahead of the July 2 Federal Election. Ask them where they stand on receiving donations from the poker machine industry and where they stand on gambling reform.
