“Everything that occurs in the course of NA service must be motivated by the desire to more successfully carry the message of recovery to the addict who still suffers.” Basic Text pg. xxviThe purpose of the Southern California Regional Narcotics Anonymous LGBTQ Committee (from here on, referred to as the LGBTQC) is to provide outreach services to help the LGBTQ suffering addict to feel part of the life-saving fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous. In accordance with our traditions, our outreach services will be inclusive of all suffering addicts. Anyone may join us, regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion.Our goal is to further NA’s primary purpose by providing an LGBTQ voice to, and by fostering and mentoring our fellowship’s (LGBTQ) lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning members’ participation in, SCRSC’s H&I, Public Relations (PI), Phonelines (PL), SBTW, Cruise, Youth, Activities, Website committees services.We believe that in reaching out to the LGBTQ addict, inclusive of any suffering addict, we will promote unity within the fellowship by helping those addicts to find their voices in service and help them to feel a sense of belonging within the community of Narcotics Anonymous as a whole.LGBTQC will develop tools and strategies to make Narcotics Anonymous meetings safe by promoting an atmosphere of recovery in our meetings in which all addicts are welcome. Our services will include distribution of related NA service materials, participation of our members at learning days and conventions, participation in the world board pool and through the power of example of our member service at a home group level.
