Red Ribbon Week


WHAT IS RED RIBBON WEEK?

It is an ideal way for Miller Elementary students and staff to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. They show their personal commitments to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon.

WHY?

The Red Ribbon Campaign® was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of
drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign® is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG – FREE AMERICA.

WHO?

National Family Partnership is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week®
Celebration. They 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®.
