MADD Georgia in Lowndes County

On December 15, 2017, the Georgia State Office of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was represented by members of its Victim Services Team, Sharlenor Whatley and Shermaine Johnson, in a presentation to the Lowndes County Judicial Circuit. Attendees of the presentation included the District Attorney and Victim Advocates. They were provided with information about MADD Georgia and the services it can provide, particularly the assistance available to victims or survivors of drunk or drugged driving crashes.


MADD’s Victim Services Specialists work to ensure that victims, survivors, and their families feel supported after their crash through providing services at no cost to victims. From providing a compassionate ear to listen, to accompanying victims or their families to court proceedings resulting from the crash, the MADD Georgia Victim Services team works directly with victims, survivors, and their families to ensure they are not alone and not without assistance after the crash.


MADD Georgia’s main goal for the presentation included explaining who MADD is and what it does. Sharlenor and Shermaine also informed attendees how MADD works collaboratively to provide assistance to victims, survivors, and their families in understanding the criminal justice system and its proceedings when needed. Shermaine Johnson is the MADD Georgia Victim Services Specialist working with victims and their families in the region and in Coastal and South Georgia.
