Open Pedagogy Lead editors: Kimberly Hoffman and Alexis Clifton Programming Fundamentals Lead: Dave Braunschweig Inclusive Version:Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous The Big Book, the basic text of Alcoholics Anonymous, was originally published in 1939 by AA founders Bill W. and Dr. Bob. Its contents have worked for decades to keep thousands of people sober, and are considered sacred and untouchable by many. However, many alcoholics that have a desire to stop drinking using the program of AA are repelled from the fellowship because of some of the language in the Big Book - specifically with regards to gender and gender roles, and the Judeo-Christian bent of its spiritual suggestions. The Inclusive Version of the Big Book will ensure the basic text of Alcoholics Anonymous is as inclusive as possible to even the most marginalized alcoholic, in keeping with the concepts, traditions, and the basis of the fellowship throughout its history - that our primary purpose is to carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers.
