The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) begins its annual Red Ribbon Campaign on October 23, 2007. DEA representatives will work in local communities with our Local Counterparts to spread a strong anti-drug message. During the campaign thousands of red ribbons will be distributed to schools across the country. Highlight’s of this year’s events includes helicopter visits from the DEA Air Wing Unit to various Red Ribbon events.

Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated each year in the United States. It is a symbol of support for DEA’s efforts to reduce demand for illegal drugs through prevention and education programs. Red Ribbon Week pays homage to Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena and all those who made the ultimate sacrifice in support of our nation’s struggle against drug trafficking and abuse. By wearing a red ribbon during the last week of October, Americans demonstrate their ardent opposition to illegal drug abuse and trafficking, as well as those who profit from the destruction of our communities.
