The ECA adds 'Advocacy' section to their website

Entertainment Consumers AssociationIn an effort to afford gamers the opportunity to become more involved in the politics surrounding their favorite passtime, the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) has opened up a new portion of their website, entitled, simply, "Advocacy."

This brand-new section of the site is where gamers can go to participate in the grassroots efforts of the ECA to stop politicians from unjustly and uncontitutionally attempting to regulate the videogame industry. So far, this includes signing one’s name and address to a pre-penned letter to Congress, urging elected officials to cease wasting time and tax dollars policing an industry that has its own self-regulatory body in place. You can take a look at that letter here.

Althouh the page says that gamers can edit the message, as of this morning I was unable to do so. I have since contacted the ECA addressing the problem, and hopefully others have done the same.

Other recources available on the site include information on violence and videogames, as well as a listing of current videogame legislation in our country.

Alright GN readers, time to make your voices heard…why not take a look?


EDIT:  The text box has been fixed, so everyone can actually edit and personalize their own letter.
