What is MADD?
MADD stands for Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
Non-profit charitable organization.
Purpose - to stop impaired driving and support the victims and survivors of these violent crimes.
MADD was founded by Candace Lightner
“Never take no for an answer if you really believe you are right about an issue. Passion is critical if you want to succeed and right a wrong. Courage is just as important – it takes courage to challenge the status quo and it takes courage to overcome whatever obstacles are thrown your way. There are many examples of one person making a difference – you could be that one person, whether it is in the halls of Congress, your community or within your family. ”
