Red Ribbon Week 2015
October 23 – 31
Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free.
In 1988, the National Family Partnership (NFP) organized the first National Red Ribbon Campaign. Today, the Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people every year.
The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a drug-free America. It is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs.
We are helping citizens across the country come together to keep children, families and communities safe, healthy and drug-free, through parent training, networking and sponsoring the National Red Ribbon Campaign.
From the National Family Partnership. For more information, visit redribbon.org.
