Corrections Committee

Judge Gavel

Purpose

Corrections committee members carry the A.A. message to the confined alcoholic who wants to live sober, one day at a time. A.A. members working with corrections personnel, help reach alcoholics who might otherwise never find the A.A. program.

 

An active corrections committee is a vital link to prisons and jails, providing professionals and other workers in correctional facilities with information about A.A., literature, and guidelines for setting up A.A. groups on the inside.
