CAL – Item # P-65 – Anonymity


P-65WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This pamphlet came out in 1991 & was included in a media kit for outreach purposes. It mentions confidentiality & I started thinking of how that was different than anonymity.  Confidentiality implies trust (confidence) & indicates intimacy.  It’s how we relate to one another on a personal, private level.  It’s our quiet voices.  Anonymity, however, allows us to relate to everyone else on a public level (see Tradition 11).  It’s our full, empowered voices that lets the focus be on what is being said, rather than who is saying it.  It makes us a nameless society – not a secret one.

2. This pamphlet was officially discontinued in May 2012, although I have quite a few left.  Still in print is Why Anonymity in Al-Anon? (item # P-33) which continues to carry the message.

**BONUS: This is the shortest pamphlet – only 4 pages.  It was originally proposed as a leaflet!
