Recommendations for Representative Language*

In the spirit of Tradition Five - carrying the ACA message to the adult child who still suffers - this document identifies language used throughout ACA literature that we recommend to be changed to be more representative of the diversity of human identities. Representative language in program literature also supports Tradition One - ensuring our common welfare and promoting unity within ACA. We expect this to be a document that will evolve over time as our knowledge and education about these issues grow.
