Accessibility Committee

Welcome to the Greater Seattle Intergroup Accessibility Committee.

Our mission is to provide aid and resources for the fellowship to overcome obstacles limiting access to Alcoholics Anonymous in our area. Accessibility means ensuring equal access to everyone.

We provide assistance with the following needs:

  • Transportation to and from A.A. meetings
  • Childcare at A.A. meetings
  • Bringing A.A. meetings into private homes
  • Facilitating online meeting information
  • Helping those with mental health issues understand the culture of A.A.
  • Bringing A.A. meetings into nursing homes
  • Helping identify tools for those who don’t speak English
  • American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation for Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing alcoholics
