Show your support: DEA's Go Red for Red Ribbon Week Oct. 23-31

Red Ribbon Week, which is observed annually on October 23-31, highlights the importance of preventing drug abuse in our nation’s schools and communities and committing to living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. This year, while October 23-31 will still be highlighted as Red Ribbon Week, DEA’s acting Administrator, Uttam Dhillon, has asked us to commemorate Red Ribbon throughout the month of October.

One of the ways in which you can help commemorate Red Ribbon Week this year is to Go Red for Red Ribbon, which brings awareness to living a drug-free life by lighting up buildings, landmarks, businesses, and bridges in red!
