The Department of Behavioral Health’s Office of Prevention Services and Programs (OPSP) and our partners are pleased to announce the statewide 2014 Governor’s Red Ribbon Campaign kickoff will be held Wednesday, October 22 at 10:00 a.m. at Mablehouse Barnes Amphitheater.
Mablehouse Barnes is an open-air, covered amphitheater located about 20 minutes west of downtown Atlanta.
We encourage you to take part in this fun, colorful kickoff celebration on October 22. It’s free and open to the public, although a majority of those attending will likely be school-aged children.
Red Ribbon Campaign events started in California after DEA Agent Enrique Camarena’s death in the early 1980’s sparked a grassroots campaign to reduce the demand for drugs and encourage healthy, violence-free lifestyles. The events began spreading across the United States in 1985 following a Congressional Proclamation, and Georgia has been participating since 1987.

2012 Red Ribbon Campaign Kickoff
The statewide Red Ribbon Campaign Kickoff was held on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at Centennial Olympic Park. Schools were invited to participate in the talent showcase or simply to come, watch, and be an integral part of this festive Georgia tradition. This year we expanded the visual arts portion of the kickoff, and instituted an expanded reward with prizes around the talent portion of the kickoff.
