Why do people think AA is a secret society?

AA was founded in 1935, the book published in 1939 was created at a time when an “alcoholic” a person who is dependent on alcohol was a very shameful thing to be.

So the anonymous nature of it was created for different reasons. It was not meant to cover up sexual assault, rape or even allow bullying.

Why do old-timers sometimes think they “Know it all”?

Yes, there are good folks in AA. But we are here to help those who have been harmed.

What can you do in your meetings and your area to make things better and safer?

1. Put on a MAKE AA SAFER WORKSHOP

2. Pass out Green Pamphlet Make AA Safer to your members.
