Red Ribbon is a national awareness campaign that was first started in 1988 in honor of slain Drug Enforcement Agent (DEA) Enrique "Kiki" Camarena. It is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. This campaign began, and continues, as an effort to educate the youth about the inherent dangers of drugs.
The Anti-Drug is a web site sponsored by the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign to provide parents with drug facts, prevention strategies, and information.
