Behind every drunk driving statistic, behind every number, is the face of a loved one.

We pause this week to take a moment to recognize the victims and survivors of drunk and drugged driving by encouraging victims to share the steps they have taken toward healing. In honor of Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which begins today and runs through April 8th, we offer victims and survivors the opportunity to add a brick to MADD’s Road of Hope.

Often, some victims look for ways to honor those killed by drunk and drugged drivers. The healing journey looks different for everyone. While some may take a different road, this is a way some can find encouragement on the Road to Hope.

If you know someone impacted by drunk or drugged driving — and since it touches two out of three people in their lifetime, you probably do — please invite them to add their own story and brick to the Road of Hope.

Honoring the memories of the more than 10,000 people killed and the lives of the 290,000 people injured by drunk driving remains at the very heart of our mission. They are the reason we are all here and why we won’t cease until we create a future of No More Victims®.
