The Red Ribbon Campaign was started in 1985 when one of our own Drug Enforcement Administration Agents, Enrique (Kiki) Camarena, was killed by drug traffickers in Mexico. His mission was to stop drug abuse in our nation. Red Ribbons are a symbol of supporting a Drug-Free America in our homes, schools and community.
