Power of Parents is an underage drinking prevention program based on research indicating that parents are the number one influence in their child’s decisions about drinking. This monthlong campaign culminates on PowerTalk 21 day — on April 21 — which is the national day for parents to start talking with their kids about alcohol. Parents who want to participate in PowerTalk 21 can get tips, conversation starters and a parent handbook, or find a free workshop in their area, at madd.org/powertalk21.
For those personally impacted by drunk driving, drugged driving and underage drinking consequences, MADD Victim Services are available at no charge, serving one person every fifteen minutes through local victim advocates and MADD’s 24- Hour Victim Help Line, 1- 877-MADD-HELP.
