Mothers Against Drunk Driving National Office

Dear Friends,

Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to prevent the tragedies caused by drunk and drugged driving, the leading killer on U.S. roads. MADD provides services to victims of drunk and drugged driving, advocates for stronger laws, educates on the dangers of underage drinking and drug use, supports our heroes in law enforcement and advocates for technology that will block the wrong and dangerous decision to drive impaired.

We had a busy year, and we want to thank you for helping us advance our mission to create a nation of No More Victims.

These are just some of the highlights of the year’s mission achievements:  MADD National President Colleen Sheehey-Church testified before the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection on the growing problem of drug-impaired driving.  MADD held 62 Law Enforcement Recognition ceremonies and honored 3,621 officers across the nation.  Government Affairs helped pass all-offender ignition interlock laws in two more states, bringing the total to 32 states and Washington, D.C.  MADD held a Law Enforcement Summit in Virginia, bringing together the nation’s top leadership in law enforcement to discuss ways to make traffic enforcement a national priority.  The Power of Parents® program equipped almost 37,000 parents with tools they need to talk to their children about underage drinking.  The second National Court Monitoring Report revealed MADD’s diligent tracking of drunk driving cases. By the end of the year, MADD had monitored almost 30,000 cases.  Victim Services staff and volunteers provided supportive services to more than 15,000 victims and survivors of drunk and drugged driving and underage drinking.  The Power of You(th)® program expanded its reach by 27 percent, empowering over 229,000 youth with tools to avoid underage drinking.  The Victim Services private Facebook Group grew to almost 4,000 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,

Adam Vanek, CEO
