Red Ribbon Week



During Red Ribbon Week, schools and organizations all around the country will be celebrating a drug-free lifestyle.
Parents, join in by educating your children about the dangers of drug abuse. Need information? Go to
Red Ribbon Week was started in 1985 by the National Family Partnership (formerly, the National Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth) to honor DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, who was tortured and murdered in Mexico in the line of duty.
He believed that "one person can make a difference," and sacrificed his life in trying to bring an end to the illegal drug trade.
Through its many programs, NFP brings Drug Awareness to the local community about the dangers of drug abuse; reaches out to policy makers on the local, state, and national level about the dangers of the drug trade; and provides free drug prevention literature to those in need of information.
Don't Be Left Behind! Join in Now!
