Greetings, and welcome to the Accessibilities Committee page. Quite often the first question is "What exactly constitutes a remote community?" and "What does the Accessibilities committee actually do?".
The definition of Accessibilities community is where it is difficult to carry the AA message because of language, culture, geography, or life condition. As you can see that applies equally as well to communities in the most rural parts of the Area as it does to communities in the heart of Minneapolis who, for a range of reasons, are not getting AA's message. Thus, the central mission of this committee is to go to any lengths necessary to carry AA’s message to all those who need it and is just one more link in the chain or responsibility in our effort to help the alcoholic to who still suffers.
At first glance it may seem that this committee reproduces some of the work of the PI or CPC committees. In reality, while the RC does work closely with these two committees, the RC serves a different need and helps fill the gap in our Area's overall 12-step work by reaching out to various communities that might not fall under the responsibility of the other area committees.
