The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) kicks off the 20th Anniversary of Red Ribbon Week. Together with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office drug prevention program, Drug Free Arizona and the Partnership for a Drug Free America, DEA representatives will work in local communities to spread a strong anti-drug message. During the campaign, more than 9,000 ribbons will be distributed to schools across the state.

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 it. Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated nationally from October 23-31.

If you would like to cover one of the Red Ribbon activities, please call the Demand Reduction Coordinator, Tom Ivarie at (602) 664-5657. For more information, please go to www.dea.gov.
