Erica Garner Endorses Bernie Sanders For President

The daughter of Erica Garner calls the candidate a “protester.”

February 12, 2016

Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner (who was choked to death in July of 2014 by the NYPD) has endorsed Bernie Sanders for president. She was released a semi-autobiographical commercial describing her life as an activist and a mother, and the hole her father's death has left in her life and the lives of her family.


She describes how the video came together on her website:

“The Senator didn’t reach out to me all of a sudden because he needs help with Black people. He didn’t put out a press conference announcing that we would be working together. He didn’t force me to frame my support of him around a subject matter that special interest groups that support him can get behind. They said we are glad to have your support, how do you want to plug in. You will see a lot of Black leaders handing out endorsements, think to yourself, have they historically been a rubber stamp for the establishment? I hope this expresses why I think Bernie is our guy!”
