Recently, MADD National President Colleen Sheehey-Church participated in a webinar with three other expert panelists for the Office for Victims of Crime. The subject of this seminar was “Serving Victims of Impaired Driving Crashes.” Colleen was able to offer the audience as well as the panelists practical insight into the victim’s side of the story. She also took the opportunity to show the invaluable aid that MADD’s victim services truly are to first responders, the community in general and especially individuals who are affected by the actions of an impaired driver and in the terrible situation of being a victim of drunk or drugged driving. Above all, it was effectively emphasized throughout this webinar that crashes should never be called accidents and that these crashes affect far more people than just the person involved in the crash.
