Watch the Virtual National Red Ribbon Rally (above) October 1!
Red Ribbon is a national anti-drug campaign that is celebrated annually, October 23-31. During Red Ribbon, young people in communities and schools across the nation pledge to live drug-free by wearing red ribbons and participating in community-wide anti-drug events.
Red Ribbon Week is also a time to pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, whose death led to the creation of the Red Ribbon program. Today, millions of Americans all over the United States continue to wear red ribbons to symbolize their support for a united, drug-free nation.
This year’s virtual Red Ribbon Rally will feature voices from our community. Our special guests represent diverse experiences and perspectives on drug misuse, prevention, and Red Ribbon activism.
Tickets are not required. No need to RSVP. Spread the word. Everyone is invited.
Visit the Red Ribbon Week main page for more information.
