Celebrated annually, the Red Ribbon Campaign is the nation's oldest and largest drug prevention campaign. During the 8-day event, millions of people across the country unite and take a visible stand for healthy, drug-free lifestyles by wearing and displaying red ribbons and by participating in anti-drug activities.
The 2019 National Red Ribbon Week theme is: Send a Message. Stay Drug Free.™ The theme is a call to action to speak out in support of healthy choices.
