Public Information in Alcoholics Anonymous means carrying the message of recovery to the still-suffering alcoholic by informing the general public about the AA program. We carry the message by getting in touch with the media, schools, industry, and other organizations, which can report on the nature and purpose of AA and what it can do for alcoholics.
The purpose of PI service work is to provide accurate AA information to the public when requested. For this purpose PI committee members visit schools, businesses, church and civic groups, and community meetings. We also staff AA booths at health fairs and serve as resources for our friends in the local media.
In all our activities we emphasize our Traditions of anonymity, singleness of purpose, and non-affiliation.
