Our Mission & Purpose

District 13-E’s mission is to foster a culture of service by supporting local AA groups in carrying the message.

“Carrying the message” (The 12th step) is the basic service that the A.A. fellowship gives; this is our principle aim and the main reason for our existence. We are a society of alcoholics in action.


District 13-E is guided by the Three Legacies of Recovery, Unity and Service, the guiding principles by which A.A. members recover and by which our society functions through the principles of A.A.’s Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts.
