SSISD Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

ribbon

Throughout the week of October 24, 2016 SSISD schools are dressing up to bring awareness to drug prevention through Red Ribbon Week. The National Family Partnership was established in 1980 by parents who believed it was time for leadership in drug prevention. NFP provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign that educates youth and encourages the participation in drug prevention activities. The red ribbon, the symbol of the campaign, stems from the murder of DEA Agent Enrique (KiKi) Camarena. On February 7th, 1985, Camarena was kidnapped by five men while leaving his office in Guadalajara, his body was found a month later. Outraged, parents and youth across America began wearing red ribbons as a symbol to raise awareness about the impact drugs has on communities throughout America.
