She helped stop discrimination.

She was on a bus, which during those times black people had to give up their seats if a white person wanted it. Most black people would have to sit in the back and without a seat, and when someone came and wanted the seat, she said No. They called the police and she was arrested. This news was heard by Martin Luther King Jr. who rallied many many people to start a petition by not riding the buses. Eventually the bus transportation went very low on money, that they decided they would allow white and black people to be able to sit wherever they want on the bus.
Rosa Parks had a long history of working for civil rights, as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). She is best known for inspiring the Montgomery (Alabama) Bus boycott in 1955. The buses were segregated and black people were expected to sit at the back and always give up their seat to a white person. Rosa Parks was a seamstress and she was exhausted after a long day of work. She got on the bus and sat down, refusing to give up her seat to a white person. This courageous act of civil disobedience was a punishable offense in the south, and she was jailed, which outraged her supporters. They decided it was time to boycott all the buses until segregation was ended.
