The fifth biennial ICSAA - International Conference of secular Alcohlics Anonymous was online. Originally booked for Washington DC, health concerns prompted committee members to meet on Zoom this year. Previously, we have been to Santa Monica (2014), Austin (2016) and Toronto (2018). Our first attempt to meet in Washington was 2020 and as all members of peer to peer support groups for people with addiction know, COVID-19 has steered us to better use of technology such as Zoom meetings.
We offered simultaneous translation in Spanish/English and French/English this year, finding a way to reduce barrier and build bridges with current technology. Mario from Montreal Quebec and Chantal of Greek/French heritage both share their story. Also, we hear about the history of the leaflet The “God” Word: Agnostics and Atheists in AA which started in Great Britain and is now available in Spanish, French and English.
