I am Emerald Garner is the youngest daughter Esaw Snipes Garner and The Late Eric Garner. Who was MURDERED by the hands of a police officer named Daniel Pantaleo on 7.17.14
in Staten Island NY. I am the mother of three children, an Administrative Assistant at a NON-Profit-Organization, and an Activist in the Civil Rights Movement. I am mother to a beautiful princess Kaylee (7years old), also the mother /aunt to my late sister Erica Garner’s two children Eric III “EJ” (1year old) and Alyssa (10 years old). I have become one of the leading voices in the fight for Justice for my father and I have vowed to never stop fighting laws and policies that help police officers get away with MURDER. I am echoing the “warrior within me, which is in memory of my sister the late Erica Garner who died from a broken heart fighting for justice for our father on Dec 30, 2017. As I fight for justice I hope to start the E20 Movement, a foundation that’s named after my late father Eric Garner and sister Erica Garner. This organization will be started in hopes to change the future of police and community interactions, arrest and other forms of interactions with police and foster change throughout the nation. I believe wholeheartedly that you can truly "turn your anger into action". While staying positive everyday I know that the road isn't easy, but that God will give me and my family the strength to push forward.
Since the MURDER of my father I have been very active in the Civil Rights Movement. I like to spread awareness to people across the nation that we will not continue to take Police Brutality as a joke. I have been sitting around for 5 years waiting for something to happen to Daniel Pantaleo. Nothing has happened, nothing is being done. We keep getting called into meetings to talk about what they are going to do moving forward but I want to know what is going to be done about ERIC GARNER. I continuously hear people like Bill De Blasio say it's not up to me. Well, we left it up to the DOJ, the Grand Jury and now the CCRB. Who is going to step up and do something? All these promises were made 5 years ago, and nothing has happened. What is going to happen when it happens to one of their sons or daughters. Will that break the cycle?
These funds will be used to support the children and grandchildren of Eric Garner continue to fight for justice!
No one should ever be murdered for being BLACK IN AMERICA!!
