FOR NEWCOMERS

For Women

Our fellowship is open to women and men, regardless of age, race, religion, ethnic background, marital status, or occupation. We welcome members of any sexual identity or orientation, whether they are gay, straight, bisexual, or transgendered.

The SAA Nashville Intergroup has made it a priority to ensure that women who are interested in our fellowship feel welcome and safe in our meetings. Many women have found serenity and freedom in the rooms of SAA. Please join us.

 

If you would like to speak to another woman about our program, contact us and request to speak with a woman, and a woman from our fellowship will get back to you. We can also arrange for a woman to accompany you to your first meeting.

 

Many of us have found wonderful male allies inside the walls of these rooms. Please be open to all members who are appropriate and willing to support your recovery.

 

While all of our Metropolitan Nashville & Davidson County meetings try to be safe places for all members, woman newcomers and members may feel varying degrees of comfort and safety at different meetings. If you do experience discrimination in SAA related to your gender, consult a trusted SAA member, sponsor, our local intergroup leaders, or the International Service Organization to share your experience, or take these issues to the group conscience, if possible.

 

Our International Service Organization has created a special pamphlet that addresses some special concerns that women frequently have when joining SAA. To view or purchase this pamphlet click here.
