Red Ribbon Week was created by the National Family Partnership after the death of DEA Agent Kiki Camarena in Mexico in 1985. It is an opportunity to show your support for a drug free America - and to talk to your children about making healthy choices. Informed Families is delighted to share tools and tips below to help you make the most of Red Ribbon Week.

This October, join Informed Families in proudly wearing your red ribbon, taking the pledge and sharing the Red Ribbon message with others.
