UPDATE: 4/18 -- The road where Sandra Bland was arrested was officially renamed in her honor during a a ceremony held on April 15.
On July 10, Sandra Bland was arrested in Waller County, Texas after protesting a minor traffic violation. She died three days later in police custody. Her death was officially ruled a suicide by hanging, though some are suspicious.
Bland was in town to accept a job offer from her alma mater, Prairie View A&M University, when she was stopped by police officer Brian Encinia. The road where she was pulled over and apprehended, University Boulevard, is now being renamed Sandra Bland Parkway.
"It's more than a vote, it's her legacy," said Bland's mother Geneva Reed-Veal said in a statement to the city council.
"If every time they pull over a student, they have to be reminded of what took place here, then that will help the relationship to be more respectful between the officers and the students," marcher Hannah Bonner told a local ABC News Station.
