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.

My name is Alex Otte and I am writing to you as MADD’s new National President. Some of you may know my story or will come to know it over the next two years, but I am truly looking forward to hearing yours. While the “club” we join when we become a victim, survivor or family member who is impacted by drunk or drugged driving is one we never intended to be a part of, what we gain is each other. Over the past decade, MADD has supported me as I learned to adjust to a new life after my crash, and I am thankful for the opportunity to support each of you. I look forward to sharing with you the excellent and impactful work that MADD staff and volunteers are doing across the country to help bring an end to impaired driving.
