5 Years Later: We Are Eric Garner

July 17, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

July 17th, 2019 will mark 5 years since the unjust killing of Eric Garner by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo. It’s been four weeks since the conclusion of the administrative trial of Officer Pantaleo – and Pantaleo has not been fired from the NYPD. None of the other officers who engaged in serious misconduct related to this incident, including Sargent Adonis, have faced disciplinary consequences for the killing of Eric Garner.

Make the Road’s Youth Power Project, and other youth organizations from throughout New York City are organizing a youth-led rally on July 17th:

5 YEARS LATER – WE ARE #ERICGARNER, which will begin at 4PM at Foley Square in downtown Manhattan. Youth leaders will be joined by Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner, and adult allies in commemorating Eric Garner’s life and calling on Mayor de Blasio and the NYPD to hold all officers involved in Garner’s unjust killing accountable.
