#RaiseItUp

Hey poker players… It’s time to #RaiseItUp!

RESPECT + FUN = GROWTH

Our Response to Growing the Game!

As an association created to Educate, Elevate and Empower women, we have listened!

Last summer, the WPT hosted a Women’s Summit where industry representatives gathered to discuss reasons why there are not more women playing poker in live venues and what can be done to change it. The overwhelming response was the poker environment wasn’t a very welcoming place for women.  Whether real or perceived, the fear of harassment at the tables exists and it’s an issue we need to address.

WPA’s answer is a global initiative to improve on the game at all levels! From players, to poker rooms and the businesses that support our industry, we’re asking everyone’s commitment to #RaiseItUp!  Raise the RESPECT + FUN =  Growth in poker!

YOU CAN BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT TO IMPROVE OUR POKER WORLD!

#RaiseItUp

The “Raise It Up" Movement is a formal conversation with the industry formed by the Women's Poker Association. Poker players recognize in order to expand the game, the culture and environment in poker rooms needs to be elevated. Together, poker players, industry partners and poker rooms become the driving force for growth in poker.
