Erica Garner daughter of Eric Garner became an outspoken critic of police brutality after her father’s death in 2014
Erica Garner - a lobbyist for social equity and the eldest little girl of the man who passed on from a police strangle hold in NY in 2014 - dead on Saturday morning days in the wake of affliction a heart assault, her mom Esaw Snipes said. It was Garner's second heart attack.
Garner accused ABC News of lying to her and her family about having an opportunity to ask the president a question in order to get them to Washington D.C., where the town hall was held, for ratings. The person running her popular Twitter account told Garner's 35,000 followers Wednesday that a CT scan revealed that she had suffered brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest". She also set up the Garner Way Foundation in her father's honor, which she said she would use to "fight to engage communities all over the world in this struggle through, political awareness, music, arts, and community activism".
Erica Garner, a prominent activist against police brutality, whose father's death at the hands of United States officers spurred mass protests, has died after suffering a heart attack.
Garner's Twitter confirmed news reports Saturday morning while issuing a challenge for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) to address her death without avoiding remarks about police conduct in the city. Garner's last words, "I can't breathe", became a slogan for activists. His mother, Venida Browder, suffered a heart attack 16 months after his death. "What do you want from marching?' He was my father", Garner told NBC News in 2015.
"She was a contender, she was a warrior and she lost the fight", Snipes said of her girl.
She was an outspoken and sometimes controversial activist against police brutality, organizing marches and speaking often to the media about her father's case.
The 27-year-old passed away on Saturday morning after being hospitalised last week, a member of her team posted on her official Twitter account. Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged. A jury voted not to indict Pantaleo on criminal charges and he remains on the force.
After news of Garner's death broke, many took to social media to pay tribute to her.
"People are dying", Garner said in the video. At that point for her own life.
A number of Black Lives Matter activists and prominent politicians have praised her life and fight over the past few days. Her father didn't deserve this.
