MADD Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 through October 15 is designated as Hispanic Heritage Month – a time to celebrate Hispanic traditions and culture and to honor the outstanding achievements and contributions Hispanic-Americans have made to our nation.

Drunk driving knows no race. Despite our cultural differences, we all share a common risk on the roadways. MADD recognizes the Hispanic-American community and their impact on American society and is committed to keeping all families and communities safe. MADD strives daily to reach out to diverse populations to fulfill its mission to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.
