“Many Paths to Recovery”

The We Agnostics & Free Thinkers International AA Convention is bringing together in unity a fellowship bound by service to reach the alcoholic still suffering. Our mission is to confirm that everyone can find a path to recovery in the AA program without having to accept anyone else’s beliefs or deny their own.

A second generation of members of We Agnostics of Hollywood, California, are engaging the world-wide community of agnostics, atheists, and freethinkers in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) around the world to establish the first:

Posted on November 4, 2014 by Site Administrator

This is just a babble about deciding to attend the WAFT convention…. your choices are, of course, your own.

Yet, we have AA to help us on the path of recovery, healing and true self honesty. In that vein of gratitude for AA, the Steering Committee is delighted to […]

Facing Our Fears The AA program teaches us to face our fears in order to work through them. As we have worked to spread the word about the convention, we have discovered an overwhelming fear many WAFTs have with respect to traditional AAers.
