Name the new bay bridge after Mary Ellen Pleasant

Mary Ellen Pleasant was a freed-slave, abolitionist, underground railroad worker, entrepreneur, the "most-talked about woman in San Francisco," and considered "the mother of Civil Rights in California." We feel the new Bay Bridge should be named after her.
