Tulalip Tribal Members Fight Drugs With Facebook

Frustrated with the negative impact of illegal drugs in his community, Tulalip member Roy Pablo is using social media to build a grassroots campaign against drug-trafficking on the reservation.

His Facebook group, “Tulalip Tribal Members Fight against Drugs,” now has hundreds of members. The site provides information on the community effort and helps people schedule in-person meetings for anti-drug action.

“A lot of people were talking about the deaths and the overdoses going on in our community,” Pablo said. “People were getting sick of it, but no one ever said anything.” The idea is “letting them know that we're not taking this anymore, we're standing up for our community, and we're going to fight for it too,” he said. “We can't let them get away with it anymore.”

People wishing to support the mission are encouraged to join the Facebook group for information about upcoming meetings and events
