A Washington State Congressional delegation passed a resolution in 2018 designating March 9, the 
day of Billy Frank Jr.’s birth, as an official National Day of Remembrance of his life, legacy, and 
accomplishments. He was a member of the Nisqually Tribe, a longtime Indian treaty rights and 
environmental activist. He helped develop the Puget Sound Salmon Management plan as well as 
working with state agencies and other groups to protect Treaty rights, salmon habitat, and sustainably manage fisheries throughout the state.
