Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Mothers Against Drunk Driving is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. @MaddOnline

MADD was incorporated on September 5, 1980, the mission or purposes of MADD as stated in its Articles of Incorporation were “To aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving. In 1984, MADD changed its name from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. This carefully considered change was made because MADD is opposed to the criminal act of drunk driving, not individuals. MADD also updated its mission statement to “Mothers Against Drunk Driving provides grassroots leadership to create major social change in the attitude and behavior of Americans toward drunk driving. In 1985, MADD’s mission statement was again updated. The mission read, “Mothers Against Drunk Driving mobilizes victims and their allies to establish the public conviction that impaired driving is unacceptable and criminal, in order to promote corresponding public policies, programs and personal responsibility. In 1992, MADD adopted a more simplified mission statement, which was “The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to stop drunk driving and support the victims of this violent crime. By 1999, MADD had greatly expanded its work on preventing underage drinking and emerging research underscored our efforts to prevent youth alcohol use. MADD’s efforts in this area were also encouraged and supported by the government, corporations, educators, the media and public. The mission statement was officially changed to make preventing underage drinking a free-standing prong of the mission. The updated mission, which continues to guide the organization today, read “The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.

As we close out our Oregon virtual Walk Like MADD event today, I want to take a moment to remember the victims of this 100% preventable crime. There are literally thousands of people who have been killed by impaired drivers in Oregon. We remember them, we still mourn their loss, and I wish I could tell each of their stories here but there are just too many!

I would, however, like to share with you Makayla Tryon, Trinity Watt, and Madison Capobianco. Three young women just stepping into adulthood. Madison, who overcame many struggles to enroll in college and had just made the Dean's List. Trinity, who had sacrificed so much to help care for her sister's children and was getting ready to graduate from high school. Makayla, the sweet girl who loved spending time with her family and her animals. All with hopes and dreams that were stolen in one moment when a drunk driver struck their vehicle broadside, with an absolutley horrific impact. Today, we remember them. We honor them. To their families, I pledge to keep their memories alive in any way I can, and MADD will continue to work to educate, provide prevention services, and continue to serve victims to the best of our ability.

Thank you so much to Kendall Automotive Group, the Lane County District Attorneys Office, every individual who donated, and all of the volunteers who donate their time, efforts, and skills to always move the mission forward!

Oregon's MADD volunteers took the initiative several years ago to secure funding for a memorial wall and garden dedicated to victims who have lost their lives in impaired driving crashes.

Last year, Oregon held its first ever Walk Like MADD event. It was so much fun, and a huge success! This year, our Walk Like MADD event is being held virtually due to the concerns surrounding Covid19.

Today is the day! We'll be sharing posts throughout the day today. If you would like to participate, join us! Send us your pictures or videos of you walking wherever you are, and let us know why supporting MADD is important to you! If you would like to donate to support our efforts here in Oregon, the link will be posted in the comments.

A very special thank you goes out to Kendall Automotive Group for sponsoring our event! The money raised by this event is used to provide services and programs in the state of Oregon.

We could not do what we do without the support of our community partners and individuals who volunteer their time or donate funds to our cause. Thank you all!

MADD Issues Statement Regarding Rideshare in California | MADD

MADD has grave concerns about the potential loss of rideshare in California. Rideshare is an extremely convenient, reliable and affordable option to help plan ahead when activities include alcohol. Losing this transportation option could put lives at risk.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has grave concerns that the future of rideshare is in jeopardy in California. Rideshare apps have provided a lifesaving alternative to arriving home safely after consuming alcohol. MADD is a strong supporter of these services because they expand transportation options a...

Impaired Driving | MADD Presidents Share Their Personal Stories

Today, NHTSA released this video of MADD's amazing present and past National Presidents as part of its Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign kickoff. MADD National President Helen Witty and past presidents Karolyn Nunnallee (1998-1999), Millie Webb (2000-2002), Wendy Hamilton (2002-2005), Glynn Birch (2005-2008) and Jan Withers (2011-2014) have saved countless lives by sharing their stories. But we're far from finished. #DriveSober #NoMoreVictims

They’ve all served as presidents of MADD, but rarely do these mothers – and a father – get the opportunity to gather together to share their stories at once....
