"Today marks the one-year anniversary of the day that a grand jury failed to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the tragic and preventable killing of Eric Garner. It is with heavy hearts that we reflect on the challenges we have faced combating the prejudices and biases underlying this issue over the past year. Let us stand together as a community and honor Eric’s memory by continuing to raise our voices against injustice, both on the streets and in the courts."
