Red Ribbon Week

From Monday, October 23, 2017
To Monday, October 30, 2017

The Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week October 23rd - October 31st each year.

It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon, October 23 - 31st.

The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a
symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs.

The mission of the Red Ribbon CampaignR is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA.

Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership, a National Family Partnership affiliate, is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week Celebration. We are helping citizens across the state come together to keep children, families and communities safe, healthy and drug-free, through parent training, networking and sponsoring the National Red Ribbon Campaign.
