The Poker Player Alliance (PPA), is considered to be the largest and most effective of all the poker advocacy groups in America. The following paragraph about the PPA is from their “about page” and says what they are about:
“The Poker Players Alliance (PPA) is a non-profit membership organization comprised of online and offline poker players. Our membership consists of enthusiasts from around the United States who have joined together to speak with one voice to promote the game and protect the right to play poker in all its forms.”
I talked about the PPA in a previous post but felt that it was worth mentioning them again this “Labor Day” for all the labor they put forth in support of legalizing poker in the Unites States.
There are many ways that we can help out their cause. One is by donating our time to them. They hold rallies across the country and need support at those events. Joining them at the rallies would be very much appreciated. Another way to help them is by contacting the President of the United States as well as the Senators and Congressional Representatives of your state and telling them to support legalized poker in the U.S. There are forms at the PPA site that make that effort quite easy. Click “here to get to the forms”.
There is also a resource that allows you to find information about your own state and who to contact expressing your support for poker. Check out by clicking here!
Lastly, another way to help the cause is to donate cash to help pay for the costs of running their organization. Click here to donate. I became a paid contributor in 2007 and I am taking the time today to renew my membership with the Poker Player Alliance.
Have a happy and safe Labor Day!
