Hi folks: The Drug Enforcement Administration is currently planning its activities for this year’s Red Ribbon Week, which is a cornerstone of DEA’s community outreach and prevention support efforts. Red Ribbon Week, observed annually from October 23-31, highlights the importance of preventing drug misuse in our nation’s schools and communities and committing to living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.

One of the ways in which you can help commemorate Red Ribbon Week this year is to Go Red for Red Ribbon, which brings awareness to living a drug-free life by lighting up buildings, landmarks, businesses, and bridges in red! Attached for your reference is a flyer that explains the Go Red for Red Ribbon initiative. Please feel free to share this flyer with your drug misuse prevention networks and stakeholders.
