Send a Message: Stay Drug Free

Red Ribbon Week started in 1988 to honor DEA Agent Enrique Camarena who was killed in 1985, is an opportunity for your coalition, school district, agency, or community to raise awareness about substance abuse prevention and education. Communities all over the United States participate in a variety of ways from tying Red Ribbons throughout the town to spread awareness outside of the school district to collecting drug free pledge from Adults and Youth at school and community events. This is a chance to maximize your substance abuse prevention efforts by collaborating with your school districts or other community groups doing this work.

October 23rd - October 31st
