Three Legacies of AA
The Three Legacies of Alcoholics Anonymous are Recovery, Unity, and Service.
These legacies are so-called because they have been passed down to us from the cofounders and old-timers of AA.
The Legacy of Recovery is contained in the Big Book, the Twelve Steps, and Twelfth Step work.
The Legacy of Unity is contained in the Twelve Traditions.
The Legacy of Service is contained n every act which helps AA function or which carries the AA message to those who need it.
