When Bernie Promised to #SayHerName #SandraBland


Social activist Hannah Adair Bonner recently posted an anecdote to her blog about running into Bernie Sanders while she was having lunch with Geneva Reed-Veal, the mother of Sandra Bland. Sandra, 28,  died in police custody after being arrested in July during a traffic stop in Texas. Her tragic death ignited a public outcry on social media and became a critical focus of the #SayHerName and #BlackLivesMatter movements. 

Reed-Veal and Sanders sat and talked, and the story of their meeting is both touching, and telling of how Sanders is the real deal.
