New Organization Launching to Fight Predatory Gambling

A new organization aimed at opposing the expansion of gambling in Kentucky is launching next week.

Stop Predatory Gambling will host a launch event on Wednesday, March 6 at 11:30 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda.  All supporters, lawmakers and media are invited to attend.

Joy Bolton, Executive Director-Treasurer of the Kentucky Woman’s Missionary Union, is serving on the organization’s Board of Directors.  In her latest post on her blog Discovering the JOY of Missions, she makes the case for why she cares — and why YOU should care — about the expansion of predatory gambling:

Expanding gambling is not about offering people more ways to have fun. It is about a predatory industry that wants people to lose money to them and our government is encouraging it in order to get a slice of what people lose.
