Public Information Committee

Public Information (P.I.) in Alcoholics Anonymous means carrying the message of recovery to the still-suffering alcoholic by informing the general public about the A.A. program. We carry the message by getting in touch with and responding to the media, schools, industry, and other organizations which can report on the nature and purpose of A.A. and what it can do for alcoholics

This Public Information Workbook is intended as a guide for A.A. members involved in Public Information community work.

Adopt a Rack

Home groups are encouraged to adopt a display of AA literature, meeting schedules or even business size cards with important information about local AA. Your District PI committee or Intergroup may already have a plan in place. Most public places wouldn’t have room to display an entire Literature Rack, which could be an option, but may allow a small rack available at your local office supply store to be situated somewhere accessible to the
general public. The homegroup would then keep the display stocked with whatever materials are appropriate to the facility being served. Some examples of where to place racks: Hospitals, Doctors’ offices, Local Health Departments, Law Enforcement Offices, Motels & Hotels, Schools, Senior Centers, Social Service Office, Treatment Facilities, Churches, Salons & Barbershops, Lawyers’ Offices, Courts, Other Municipal Offices etc.

A.A.’s online literature store contains a variety of pamphlets, books, CDs, DVDs, kits and packets related to Public Information. Click the link below to access the book store.
