MADD’s Mission Statement

The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.

Get Involved

Humble Beginnings

The kitchen table.

It’s a location for family gatherings…a place to share emotional and physical sustenance…the spot where children tell their parents about what happened at school that day. And it’s a place where love and laughter are exchanged during holiday gatherings and family celebrations.

And, after a tragedy, the table also serves as an all too painful reminder of those no longer seated around it. That’s why in 1980, it was a small, unassuming kitchen table where one mom started a movement that would significantly change the course of history in the United States.

Cutting drunk driving fatalities in half since 1980 didn’t happen accidentally. It took a cadre of dedicated volunteers and staff to change both attitudes and laws. Consider becoming a part of our team and join the thousands of others who have helped pave the way for safer streets.

Opportunities include implementing community-based programs, working with law enforcement officers, providing victims critical services in their time of most need or a whole host of other positions.

Turn your passion into a position. Work at MADD.

One woman, hardened by grief and strengthened by unwavering determination, started MADD along the road to No More Victims® nearly 40 years ago. She did not remain alone for long. Quickly and consistently,  leaders, supporters and organizations joined with us to demand an end to this 100% preventable and violent crime.

MADD is grateful for its generous partners and sponsors—all critical to reaching the most important number of all – zero. As in, zero drunk driving and zero victims.
