This week is Red Ribbon week; this celebration runs from October 29th to November 2. Red Ribbon week is an alcohol, tobacco, drug, and violence prevention campaign that is held and celebrated during the month of October. During this week, schools hold days where students may dress up and be informed of the history of this week and are encouraged to say no to drugs and alcohol. This week is also held in honor of Enrique Camarena. His story sparked several movements, support groups, and campaigns across the country that promote the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse.
