Red Ribbon Week has been held annually during the last week of October commemorating the murder of undercover agent, Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, by drug traffickers in Mexico. Angered by his death as well as the damaging effects of drugs on our culture, the people of Camarena's hometown, Calexico, California, began wearing red ribbons in his honor. We can show our support for this event by wearing our red ribbons this week.
