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.
