Corrections Committee

Meeting Time: The 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm at Central Office (1000 Elmwood Avenue)

What does the Corrections committee do? We carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the still suffering alcoholics who are incarcerated in correctional institutions or otherwise detained. We do this by coordinating with A.A. groups and/or members to take A.A. meetings into correctional facilities, encouraging A.A. members to participate in corrections meetings and helping them through the clearance process, collecting donated literature for inmates, and acting as a liaison between correctional facilities and A.A. groups.

How do I get in touch with the Corrections committee? You can call our Central Office at (585) 232-6720 or send us an email at office1@rochester-ny-aa.org. Our phone line is answered twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. You will leave your contact information with whoever answers and they will forward that information on to the committee. Contact the committee chair at corrections_committee@rochester-ny-aa.org.

What types of service work can A.A. members do at the Corrections Committee? Committee members interface with the local correctional facilities, distribute information about corrections service work to local AA members, purchase and organize A.A. literature to bring into the facilities, and connect AA members to inmates through our “Bridging the Gap” program.
