Erica Garner became an activist after her father, Eric Garner, was murdered by NYPD in 2014. After her father’s death, Erica Garner dedicated her life to speaking out against police brutality.
Her father’s death triggered something within her and she could not keep silent, especially since the officer who killed Eric Garner was not indicted.
The Garner family received a $5.9 million settlement but it wasn’t enough to bring justice for the death of Eric Garner.
Erica Garner never stopped speaking out against police brutality and she did all she could to shed light on the matter.
After being in a coma for a few days, Erica Garner has died at age 27.
According to reports, she “suffered from cardiac arrest a week prior” and was hospitalized in Brooklyn.
It’s so unfortunate that Erica Garner’s life was cut short but her story will always be remembered as one of bravery, strength, and courage.
Rest in Peace Erica.
