submit your story about problem gambling

I recently heard from Scott Chan, who is working o a project to address problem gambling in Asian Pacific Islander communities in California. As you probably know, this is a pretty serious issue affecting our community. And between the taboos and shame of talking about such problems, and casinos getting more and more aggressive in marketing to Asians, it doesn't seem to be getting any better.

Scott is gathering resources, vidoes and stories that he intends to make available on a website he's working on, with the goal of raising awareness about problem gambling in the API community. So he's putting the call out to you for your stories.

If you've got a story that could help people understand how problem gambling affects our community, you're encouraged to send it in. They can be good or bad... or whatever you want to share on the topic. It can be about friends, neighbors, family members or yourself. There's no word limit and you don't have to be from California.

Email your story to mygamblingstory@gmail.com. Or you can go here and post your story anonymously. Problem gambling is not something you can easily see and point out. Tell us your story so we can start truly documenting what is happening in our communities.
