Underearners Anonymous® Conference Approved Literature is material in the form of written, spoken, visual and recorded content intended for the primary purpose of carrying the message of recovery to the suffering underearner. UA Conference Approved Literature has been created, developed and/or adopted by the voting members at UA’s World Service Conference. Underearners Anonymous® Literature abides by and adheres to the suggested practice of recovery as expressed through the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions found in the Big Book and The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
UA General Service Board (GSB) Literature Committee is working to develop more Literature for Conference approval while working to transition away from unofficial literature.
Some of the early members of UA found the following materials useful in creating the foundation of their UA programs. They remain available pending adoption of further UA World Conference Approved Literature.

This motion may be ready for the 2019 World Service conference!
