Billy Frank Jr. Honored With National Day of Recognition – Nisqually Valley News

It is great to see that this is turning into a national holiday. One of the most inspiring people I’ve ever personally met.Thoughts of his words and the times I met him keep me going when the going gets tough and it feels like nothing will change.

Last Friday members of the Washington state Congressional delegation passed a resolution designating March 9, the day of Billy Frank Jr.’s birth, as an official national day of remembrance of his life, legacy and accomplishments. Also on Frank Jr.’s birthday on Friday was a dedication and blessing of a park and trail in Frank Jr.’s name by the Port of Olympia. U.S. Senators Maria Cantwell (D-Washington) and Patty Murray (D-Washington) and U.S. Representatives Denny Heck (D-Washington) and Derek Kilmer (D-Washington) introduced a resolution to honor Billy Frank Jr. (Nisqually Valley News)
