PROPOSED 11TH TRADITION CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT

Cocaine Anonymous World Services is currently entertaining a motion that if passed will alter the wording of the 11th tradition. The motion reads as follows:

 

Motion:

 

To change the 11th Tradition which states:

 

“Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, television and films”.

 

to:

 

“Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of all public media”.

 

This is a novel event in our fellowship’s and can only pass with the consent of 3/4 of all C.A. groups.

 

Included below is a link to a package which contains the following:

 

  1. A backstory to the motion;
  2. A list of pros and cons (meant as a starting point for your group’s discussions);
  3. The process to change the tradition; and
