About Arizona Secular AA
The main goal of Secular AA is to provide meetings that "endeavor to maintain a tradition of free expression where alcoholics may feel free to express any doubts or disbeliefs they may have, and to share their own personal form of spiritual experience, their search for it, or their rejection of it. In keeping with A.A. tradition, we do not endorse or oppose any form of religion or atheism. Our only wish is to ensure suffering alcoholics that they can find sobriety in A.A. without having to accept anyone else's beliefs, or having to deny their own".
Arizona Secular AA is a loosely organized ever changing group of individuals throughout Arizona that together aim to support the Secular AA community in Arizona.
For the most part, we're a Facebook Group with a website, a YouTube channel a Twitter page and together we've managed to pull off three secular AA conferences in Arizona; one in 2015, 2017, and 2019. Currently, we in the planning stages for the next AZ Secular AA Conference.
Our goals are:
- Support the Secular AA Community in Arizona through various means and support (Organizing the biennial AZ Secular AA Conference, maintain listings for Secular AA Meetings (online or in person), and to maintain our online presence in general, whether that be our website, Facebook page, You Tube Channel, or other online resource).
- Coordinate the activities of AZ Secular AA with the larger Secular AA Community.
- Work to promote the acceptance and awareness of Secular AA in the greater AA Community.
Being that we are a loosely organized ever changing group of individuals just like with any service position in AA, we can always use more help. If you are looking for service opportunities and have the time to spare, we are always looking for more help. Whether you want to be more involved with future conference planning, maintaining our online presence via the website, Facebook Page etc., or you just want to provide a voice and input into what we do, please contact us and let us know.
I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help I want the hand of AA always to be there, and for that I am responsible.
(Known as the Responsibility Statement, it was written for the 1965 A.A.International Convention in Toronto by former AA trustee, Al S. Many secular AA groups choose to use it to close their meetings.)
