Red Ribbon Week 2023 - October 23 to 27
Red Ribbon Week is an annual awareness campaign in the United States that takes place during the last week of October. It serves as a time to educate and remind people, particularly young students, about the dangers of drug and substance abuse. The campaign was initiated in memory of DEA agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, who lost his life while fighting against drug trafficking. Red Ribbon Week encourages individuals to wear red ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to living a drug-free life and to promote the message that a healthy, drug-free lifestyle is both achievable and desirable. Through various activities and educational programs, this week-long event aims to prevent substance abuse, support individuals in recovery, and foster a sense of community and responsibility in addressing the problems associated with drug use. This week is a great week to have conversations with your students about the importance of staying DRUG FREE!
