Webcast Replay—Red Ribbon Rally

Watch the webcast replay of the 2019 Red Ribbon Rally. This year, the DEA will kick off an entire month of drug prevention awareness with our Red Ribbon Rally. The National Red Ribbon Week commemorates DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. Agent Camarena was abducted, tortured and brutally murdered in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1985. Agent Camerena sacrificed his life in the fight against drugs. The communities across the country and the nation rallied behind a campaign which served as a reminder of the harm caused by drugs. The campaign expressed the need for anti-drug programs and the campaign would allow the dedicated actions of Americans to show their opposition to drugs. The campaign became known as The National Red Ribbon Week. Learn More
