Red Ribbon Week is nationally recognized and celebrated as a symbol of support for efforts to reduce drug use through youth prevention and education programs. By wearing a red ribbon during the last week in October, individuals demonstrate their opposition to illegal drugs and illustrate their dedication to living drug-free.
The 2021 Red Ribbon Campaign Theme was Drug Free Looks Like Me™. According to the campaign website, the theme was created by Ohio 7th grader Marin Wurst. It serves as a reminder that everyday Americans across the country make significant daily contributions to their communities by being the best they can be because they live Drug-Free.
The Council on Chemical Abuse sponsors the National Red Ribbon Campaign by providing red ribbons and educational programming free upon request to Berks County schools.
