The National Family Partnership (NFP) organized the first Nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign, in 1985. NFP provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Celebration. The Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America.
