RED RIBBON WEEK OCTOBER 23-31

Join the California Sheriffs and Say NO to Drugs by celebrating Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Red Ribbon Week raises awareness of drug use and the problems related to drugs facing our communities. Traditionally Red Ribbon Week always takes place October 23-31, but for many schools it is typically celebrated the last full week of October.

 

Show your support and help the Sheriffs of California continue to fight against the devastating drug epidemic that is plaguing California. Red Ribbon Week educates individuals, families, and communities on the destructive effects of alcohol and drugs and encourages innovative ways to keep kids and communities drug free.

OCTOBER 20-24 IS AMERICA'S SAFE SCHOOLS WEEK
 
Our nation's schools should be safe havens for teaching and learning and free of crime and violence. Any instance of crime or violence at school not only affects the individuals involved but also may disrupt the educational process and affect bystanders, the school itself, and the surrounding community.

Launched in early 2014 and overseen by the National Institute of Justice, the Comprehensive School Safety Initiative was established to create a firmer foundation of knowledge so that communities can implement individualized programs and policies based on scientific evidence.

During America's Safe Schools Week (October 20-24, 2014), see our School Safety Special Feature for information, materials, and related sites that focus on making schools safe environments.

OCTOBER IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH

 

Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels.
