Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country.
It serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand
for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug
prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free
lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of a drug free America.
And, perhaps more importantly, Red Ribbon Week commemorates the ultimate
sacrifice made by DEA Special Agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, who died at
the hands of drug traffikers in Mexico while fighting the battle against
illegal drugs to keep our country and children safe.
