Red Ribbon Week

What is Red Ribbon Week?

Red Ribbon started in 1985, in honor of Enrique (Kiki) Camarena, a Drug Enforcement Administration Agent who was tortured and killed in Mexico. His friends and neighbors began wearing red ribbons in his memory, honoring his battle against illegal drugs. The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug-use prevention campaign in the nation.

The Red Ribbon Campaign is organized by the National Family Partnership (NFP), with the mission to lead and support the nation's families and communities in nurturing the full potential of health, drug free youth.
