Red Ribbon


Red Ribbon Ceremony 2021 Host School District:


Washingtonville Central School District

Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs.  The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons 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.
