WHY RED RIBBON WEEK?? SEVERAL YEARS AGO ENRIQUE CAMARENA, A DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENT, WAS
KILLED BY DRUG TRAFFICKERS IN MEXICO. IN RESPONSE TO HIS DEATH, ANGERED PARENTS ACROSS THE
COUNTRY BEGAN WEARING RED RIBBONS AS A SYMBOL OF THEIR COMMITMENT TO PROVIDING A DRUG FREE
FUTURE FOR OUR NATION'S YOUTH. IN 1988, NATIONAL FAMILY PARTNERSHIP SPONSORED THE FIRST NATIONAL
RED RIBBON CELEBRATION. TODAY, THE RED RIBBON STANDS AS A SYMBOL OF ENRIQUE'S BELIEF THAT ONE
PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND THAT TOGETHER WE CAN GIVE THE GREATEST GIFT TO OUR FUTURE;
DRUG FREE YOUTH. JOIN NEARLY 80 MILLION AMERICANS IN CELEBRATING RED RIBBON WEEK. WEAR A RED
RIBBON TO CELEBRATE HEALTHY, DRUG FREE LIFESTYLES AND TO REMEMBER A PERSON WHO IN LIFE AND IN
DEATH MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THE FIGHT FOR DRUG FREE COMMUNITIES.
