Welcome to NIMCO, Inc.'s Red Ribbon Week and Prevention Resources Page!
Red Ribbon Week is celebrated every year from October 23rd through the 31st. It is the nation’s oldest and largest drug-abuse prevention awareness campaign and is devoted to the well-being of children all over the country.
Red Ribbon Week began after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. In 1985, Camarena was brutally tortured and murdered by the drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico. As a tribute to SA Camarena, Henry Lozano – a high school friend of Camarena – and Congressman Duncan Hunter created “Camarena Clubs” in opposition to drug abuse and began wearing red satin ribbons as a symbol of Camarena’s memory.
In 1988, the National Family Partnership coordinated the first National Red Ribbon Week with President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan, serving as honorary Chairpersons. Since then, the Red Ribbon campaign has taken on national significance. The National Family Partnership continues to coordinate the campaign for families, schools, and communities across the nation each year. Wearing red ribbons during the month of October continues to represent the pledge to live drug-free and honors the sacrifice of all who have lost their lives in the fight against drugs.
