Feeling Safe in the Rooms of AA: An online workshop (Nov. 17, 2019)

Have you attended a Safety workshop? Have you felt unsafe in an AA meeting? Do you know what to do when someone disrupts an AA meeting? Have you felt bullied? Did you know that A.A. is not a cloak for criminal behavior?

If this sounds interesting and you want to learn more, then we have the workshop for you! Area 83 is offering an Online Safety in AA workshop. It will be presented by myself, Panel 67 delegate, Kim S, on Sunday November 17, from 7-8 p.m. This course will be offered using an online meeting software called Zoom. Zoom is a free app or program that allows you to participate from the comfort of your home!!

When I was a delegate, safety was an important issue for me. It still is! There will be a presentation with time for discussion.  If you or anyone you know is having a safety issue, then please join us on Sunday, November 17 at 7:00pm.  Don’t be silent or fearful. This is the time to speak out. Let’s talk.

Note to Intergroup Reps for regular shift commitments: Please pass this along to people in your group who are already trained on remote forwarding and ask them to please email webmaster@ottawaaa.org to be added to the internal TAS distribution list.

If you are trained and see an opening on the calendar please feel free to take the shift. Please email tas@ottawaaa.org to let our coordinator know and so they can add you to the calender.
