Revised A.A. Preamble Coming Soon!

Did you hear? An advisory action of the 71st General Service Conference, and accepted by the General Service Board, resulted in the action of replacing the words “men and women” with “people” in the A.A. Preamble. This change, actively discussed in groups across the United States and Canada for two years, will make its debut in the July issue of Grapevine, and its translation will be in the July/August issue of La Viña. At our San Francisco Founders Day event this Saturday, this change and several other updates to conference approved literature will be discussed. Event details below!
