Red Ribbon DEA badgeThe National Family Partnership organized the first nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign in 1988.

Since its beginning, the Red Ribbon Campaign has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Special Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing red ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America.
