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. If you are sober and have a desire to serve, you can help! When they have had enough, we want A.A. to be there in the yellow pages and other publications and media offering our help.
When anyone anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that… I AM RESPONSIBLE.

They also reflect guidance given through the Twelve Traditions and the General Service Conference (U.S. and Canada). The purpose of these Guidelines is to assist in reaching an informed group conscience….[View AA Guidelines]
