The Public Information function in Alcoholics Anonymous follows the principals of being about “attraction not promotion” and of remaining anonymous. It’s goal is to carry the message to the still suffering alcoholic. This can take various forms including distribution of literature, airing of public service announcements on television and radio, presentations and speakers for groups.
