Accessibilities Committee

ACCESS TO THE MESSAGE

The Members of the Accessibilities Committee explore, develop and offer resources to make the Alcoholics Anonymous message, and participation in our program, available to everyone who reaches out for it.

BASIC COMMITTEE FUNCTIONS

The purpose of the Accessibilities Committee is to serve all Alcoholics making the AA message available to members with diverse accessibility needs. This would include those who may be hearing-, visually-, or speech-impaired, those who are homebound, chronically ill, those who use wheelchairs, walkers or crutches, and those who are developmentally challenged or who suffer from brain damage, stroke, etc. Whatever their challenge may be, it is hoped that they would never be excluded from A.A. meetings, Twelve Step work or A.A. service.
