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 working class-based civil rights organization. Its more than half-million members and supporters throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, campaigning for equal opportunity and conducting voter enlistment.
I find these few organizations very important in everyone’s lives, because if it wasn’t for the NAACP or LULAC. African Americans and Hispanics would not be treated as equals today. The world would not be in its place today, it would be run differently. America would not be a free country as it is today. An because of such organization like these United States has the most immigrants than any other country, and we are proud of that. If such organizations did not exist today , laws that we have now would not exist as well.
That is why I say we need to keep these sorts of organizations strong and be members in them, organization like these are the ones that want to improve life in the community.. Comparing the relationship of the following constitutional democracy, MADD Mothers Against Drunk Driving helped form laws. This happened within a constitutional democracy where citizens speak and senators and representatives listen to the voice of the people. Authoritarian and Totalitarian also ties in with MADD, LULAC and NAACP.
Authoritarian/Totalitarian is any kind of government where rights are granted by government and are taken away. The many are ruled by the one or the few. The rulers can do whatever they want and the majority have to obey all rules, and have no say in anything. Authoritarianism is characterized by highly concentrated and centralized power maintained by political repression and the exclusion of potential challengers. It uses political parties and mass organizations to mobilize people around the goals of the regime. Totalitarianism is an extreme version of authoritarianism.
Authoritarianism primarily differs from totalitarianism in that social and economic institutions exist that are not under governmental control. Authoritarianism and democracy are not fundamentally opposed to one another, it is thus perfectly possible for democracies to possess strong authoritarian elements, for both feature a form of submission to authority. So all these three Authoritarian, Totalitarian and constitutional democracy tie together and conclude the following three civic groups, organizations I talked about.
