2018 Red Ribbon Week & Bully Prevention Month

The Red Ribbon Campaign was started in 1985, and has continued to be a tradition as Red Ribbons are displayed as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a Drug-Free America. Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people, schools, community groups, governments, and business to unite and take a stand against drugs. Good Character traits and positive choices are emphasized in addition to the need for living free from drugs.

The month of October is also National Bullying Prevention Month. This campaign was created in 2006 with a one week event which has now evolved into a month-long effort that encourages everyone to take an active role in the bullying prevention movement.
