Rotary Club of Ventura South

 
 
Stacy Brown represented Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MAAD) this past week.
 
MAAD focuses its resources on lobbying to support new legislation aimed to curb underage drinking and drunk driving fatalities, while also pushing initiatives aimed at educating parents and teens.
 
Stacy mentioned that the movement is not meant to prohibit alcohol consumption, but instead to encourage a more responsible approach to alcohol use.
 
Drunk driving is the number one driver of substance abuse fatalities in the U.S., accounting for over 4,300 deaths. 
 
Ms. Brown is a former attorney and also coaches screenwriting.  She rings a layered dynamic to the movement and aims to continue to help mothers within the U.S.
