RED RIBBON WEEK - OCT 23rd-31st
The week of October 23rd through October 31st is a week focused on parents' involvement in drug prevention throughout the United States. This year's theme is "Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free" for National Red Ribbon Week.
Red Ribbon Week is sponsored by the National Family Partnership (NFP), a nonprofit organization created by parents dedicated to drug prevention and advocacy. The NFP is partnered with hundreds of groups and organizations across the country. They provide awareness, advocacy and resources to parents who want to keep the conversation about drug use open with their children.
Only 25 percent of parents talk to their children about drug use. These children are then over 40 percent less likely to experiment with drugs. So why aren't more parents having conversations with their children on this topic? The NFP and Red Ribbon Week hope to bring more awareness to the topic so more parents discuss dangerous drug use with their children.
To get involved in the Red Ribbon Campaign, you are encouraged to wear a red ribbon on your clothing throughout the week, participate in local community events focused on this topic or create an open dialogue with your own children.
