Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week is an annual national event, held October 23 – 31 each year, that was created in 1988 to honor the work of fallen DEA agent, Enrique Camarena. After his brutal murder, Camarena’s hometown donned red ribbons. The red ribbon became the symbolic statement for prevention awareness – through Red Ribbon Week information and activities – in order to reduce the demand for illegal drugs. www.redribbon.org Tualatin Together partners with the school district to hold age appropriate events at the elementary, middle school and high school to promote the Red Ribbon movement through educational activities. Tualatin Together also partners with the Grange for a community bulb planting event during Red Ribbon week. If you are interested in getting involved with Red Ribbon Week or would like to bring more Red Ribbon Week activities to your child’s school, please contact us for ways to get involved.
