Red Ribbon Week October 23-27, 2023
Our theme for this year is “Ask Me, See Me, Be Me, I’m Drug Free.”
Red Ribbon Week represents a strong commitment by communities to provide a drug-free, healthy future for our nation’s youth.
Enrique Camarena was a Special Agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration. The death of this brave man in the fight against drugs in 1985 touched many Americans and led to the founding of the red ribbon movement.
Every American, including every girl and boy, can help make this a nation free of drugs. You can help simply by deciding never to use drugs. When wearing your red ribbon and celebrating "Red Ribbon Week" you are saying, “This is my country. I want it to be free of drugs. I am doing my part by making a promise, especially to myself, to stay drug-free.”
The Red Ribbon stands as a symbol of Enrique Camarena’s belief that one person can make a difference and that together we can give the greatest gift to our future – drug-free youth.
