Advocacy

NCPG is the national advocate for the problem gambling field, advocating for programs and services to assist problem gamblers and their families. Our efforts to educate Congress and the Federal health agencies focus on the prevention, education, treatment, enforcement and research on gambling and problem gambling. We call on all NCPG members and supporters to utilize the materials below to increase awareness of and provide solutions for gambling problems.

Problem Gambling Advocacy Day

March or April – date TBD

Join key stakeholders in Washington, DC to develop strong public policies relating to problem gambling and appropriating the necessary funding for education, research, treatment, and prevention. Problem Gambling Advocacy Day brings together key stakeholders in a grassroots effort for training on how to be an effective advocate with legislature representatives and their staff members at all levels, and to support specific legislative initiatives that NCPG is working for on the federal level.
