MADD 2017 Annual Report

Dear Friends of MADD,

Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is leading the nation on a path to No More Victims® through our advocacy for stronger laws, steadfast support for high-visibility law enforcement and commitment to serve victims of these violent, 100 percent preventable crimes. We are grateful to you for helping us advance our mission.

Here are just some of the year’s mission achievements:

• MADD National President Colleen Sheehey-Church testified before the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee to express MADD’s support for development of fully autonomous vehicles. • MADD held 85 Law Enforcement Recognition ceremonies and honored 4,452 officers across the nation. • Government Affairs helped pass all-offender ignition interlock laws in two more states, bringing the total to 30 states and Washington, D.C. • The Power of Parents® program equipped almost 32,000 parents with tools they need to talk to their children about underage drinking. • The release of a new National Court Monitoring Report revealed MADD’s diligent tracking of drunk driving cases. By the end of the year, MADD had monitored 24,604 cases. • Victim Services staff and volunteers provided 206,435 supportive services to victims and survivors of drunk and drugged driving and those impacted by underage drinking. • The Power of You(th)® program expanded its reach by 22 percent, empowering more than 180,000 youth with tools to avoid underage drinking. • The Victim Services private Facebook Group grew to about 3,000 members, providing a virtual connection for victims to communicate with each other. The pages that follow will describe in detail MADD’s impact on individuals and across the nation. Every one of these accomplishments is a reflection of the hard work by our dedicated volunteers and staff, our generous donors, our partners in law enforcement and you.

Together we are saving lives and serving those who need us most.

With gratitude,
