Dear to whom this is concerning, I am here by writing this essay to explain, how these organizations in the United States such as the MADD, LULAC, and NAACP can educate and help our fellow citizens of America change laws that might well need to be changed. As well as explaining the common interest these groups are concerned with. First you might ask what is the MADD and what do those letters stand for? Well I will tell you MADD is a lobby group for drinking and driving and they’re a huge organization throughout North America. MADD stands for Mothers Against Drunk Driving and they’re main goal is to prevent people from drinking and driving because it is a huge killer in Canada and US. MADD has helped save more than 268,000 lives through research-based programs, public education, exemplary victim services, and policy initiatives. In fact, a national opinion survey of college-age individuals found that 70 percent favor 21 as the minimum age to sell or serve alcohol and 65 percent want rules more strongly enforced. Teens use alcohol more frequently and heavily than all other illegal drugs combined. LULAC stands for League of United Latin American Citizens. It was created to combat the discrimination that Hispanics face in the United States. Established February 17, 1930 in Corpus Christi, Texas, LULAC was a consolidation of smaller, like-minded civil rights groups already in existence. Since its creation, the organization has grown it has a national headquarters, active councils in many states, and a professional staff. LULAC continues to operate however, while it is perhaps more nationally visible than ever, in recent decades it has lost considerable strength due to a decreasing and less-active membership base and decreasing funds. NAACP stands for National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, originally called the National Negro Committee. Founded Feb. 12. 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest, largest and most widely recognized

The dangers did not vanish with the signing of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention of 1972, and…
