                                      One MADD, One Voice, One Mission
                                      A message from Eloisa Orozco, Executive Director.

                                      I am proud to begin 2012 by reflecting on all that we accomplished in 2011. With the help of our dedicated
                                      volunteers, sponsors, awareness partners, community supporters, and local media allies we expanded our
                                      reach in our efforts to save lives and prevent injuries. The message of one MADD, empowered, optimistic,
                                      focused and forward thinking resonated loud and clear as we reintroduced MADD to the public by refreshing
                                      our brand to reach new audiences. San Diego played a key role in national efforts by:
                                       Serving as one of three national launching sites introducing PowerTalk 21™, the national day to talk to
                                          kids about alcohol
                                       Joining Walk Like MADD® Hispanic Outreach efforts as one of three national key markets
                                          Adding to the roster of the National Football League and MADD’s partnership by teaming up with the San
     Local Leadership                      Diego Chargers on their designated driver game day educational program– contributing to the Chargers’
   MADD Advisory Council
