‘We’re doing this for Sandra Bland’


People’s Power Assemblies NYC organized its fifth annual rally and march in Brooklyn, N.Y., on July 13 to demand justice for Sandra Bland.  The 28-year-old African-American woman was found hanging in a Waller County, Texas, jail cell on the same date in 2015. Bland had been abused and then falsely arrested by a white cop during a traffic stop.  Her case helped ignite the Twitter hashtag #SayHerName
