Diversity and Inclusion Added to AAWS Safety Material!
A.A. World Services expanded the service piece, “Safety and A.A.: Our Common Welfare” to include diversity and inclusion! There’s also a “Safety and A.A.” Flyer available to download! See below for an excerpt of the revised safety document:
“Membership does not include having to tolerate racism in A.A. or removing this life experience from one’s story. Many groups have found that providing a safe space to share this experience to be no more in contradiction of Tradition Ten (an “outside issue”) than the topic of safety and A.A. itself. Racism in A.A. is a safety issue.”
“A.A. membership is open to all genders and backgrounds. No matter one’s gender identity, some members have shared that they find it helpful to have a safe space to voluntarily share their pronouns with other members of the group, in order to help the group get to know them better. Some members have shared that they voluntarily share their pronouns at in-person or online meetings so that others may feel more comfortable, if they care to do so.”
“We in A.A. believe alcoholism is a disease that is no respecter of age, varying abilities, gender, creed, race, wealth, occupation or education. Our experience seems to show that anyone can be an alcoholic. And, beyond question, anyone who wants to stop drinking is welcome in A.A.” (p.5 & p.6)
