In this booklet I will be talking about the MADD organization.

About MADD

 

MADD stands for Mothers Against Drunk Driving. It was created on September 5, 1980 in California. The founder created this organization after her daughter was killed by a drunk driver. MADD's mission statement is as follows: "To end drunk driving, help fight dugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking." 

 

MADD is trying to get certain laws on alcohol, driving, jail time, etc. to be created in different states. In order to do this they are asking people to send a email or letter to their state representative about the laws. Since MADD's founding there was been 53% less deaths caused by drunk driving, an estimate of 340k lives saved, and 820k victims served.
