  MADD was there for my family and me when a DUI driver killed my father on June 5, 1992. (My father pictured here) MADD helped us through the court process, what to expect and what our rights were.  We are eternally grateful for their valuable support.  Since then I’ve been a MADD guest speaker and supporter of MADD.

 

If you are looking for a MADD speaker for your group, class, or Military Safety Stand-Down, contact MADD, we’re available to speak to your group!
