Stop the Gettysburg Casino

Students Take Action

posterOnce again a group of investors have chosen Gettysburg, Pennsylvania – the scene of indescribable suffering in 1863 – as the location for a new casino. The proposed casino would be a mere ½ mile from the National Park.

Fortunately we can stop them!
