Red Ribbon Week 2023


Please join DEA and participate in this year’s Red Ribbon Week. Each year, from October 23-31, individuals, schools, and communities across the United States show their commitment to a healthy, drug-free lifestyle by wearing or displaying a red ribbon. This annual event offers a great opportunity for parents, teachers, students, and community members to raise awareness of the problem of drug use and misuse. This year’s Red Ribbon Week theme is “Be Kind to Your Mind, Live Drug Free.” The Red Ribbon Week Toolkit includes including downloadable graphics, fact cards, student and parent pledges, and ways to support¬† Red Ribbon Week in your schools and communities.

Several contests with prizes are being sponsored by DEA and its partners, such the Red Ribbon Week Photo Contest and the Red Ribbon Week Campus Video PSA Contest. The National Red Ribbon Rally will be held virtually on October 12, 2023, and can be viewed on www.dea.gov.
