NEIGHBORS & FAMILY RENAME RICE STREET IN HONOR OF COMMUNITY ACTIVIST RUBY LEE
Ruby Lee was the heart of her Austin neighborhood along Rice Street west of Mayfield Avenue. She was the glue that held together her community and her family. She headed the block club for many years and galvanized local residents to maintain high standards for the neighborhood.
On June 4, Ruby Lee’s family and friends came out on the street she loved so much to unveil an honorary street sign in her honor and to fondly remember their matriarch and village elder.
