The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility leads the fight to eliminate drunk driving and underage drinking and promotes responsible decision-making regarding beverage alcohol.

The Foundation researches current trends and develops policy initiatives regarding impaired driving, underage drinking, teen driver safety, and healthy lifestyles. Over the years we have worked alongside coalition partners to support effective legislation in more than 45 states and at the federal level. Additionally, we team up with elected officials and other partners to launch our prevention programs and have held more than 3,000 community events across the nation.
