Shine A Light

With the rapid expansion of gambling and the record-breaking introduction of mobile sports betting, there is no better time to bring this issue to the forefront. NYCPG and the seven local PGRC’s are calling on everyone to shine the light on problem gambling, an issue that impacts millions of American adults. We all must collaborate to raise awareness of problem gambling, prevent any additional problems related to gambling, and get those in need to adequate, local support services.

The New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG) and the Problem Gambling Resource Centers (PGRC) are working to Shine A Light on Problem Gambling.  Part of this effort is to encourage communities and landmarks to join our efforts in bringing awareness to our mission.   We are reaching out to our trusted partners and community champions to support our efforts.  The wider our reach, the more likely we are to reach those affected negatively by problem gambling.   

Please see the suggested ideas below on how you can participate and support the campaign.
