Take Action: Demand Justice for #EricGarner & #DelrawnSmall!
We still can’t breathe. The families of Garner and Small deserve justice.

It’s been nearly 5 years since Eric Garner pleaded for his life and cried, “I can’t breathe,” while NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo strangled him. Two years after the killing of Eric Garner, Delrawn Small was shot three times and killed in front of his family by Officer Wayne Isaacs.
No family should have to suffer losing a loved one at the hands of those charged with protecting them. Yet, over and over again, we have watched victims of police killings and their families be denied justice by leaders who not only refuse to enforce accountability, but also protect and even reward police who kill.
Mayor de Blasio’s inaction sends a clear message: Eric Garner and Delrawn Small’s lives do not matter.
When police officers abuse their authority in our communities, we are left vulnerable and unsafe. We need community safety and justice, not abusive policing.
We are calling on Mayor de Blasio to finally hold all police officers involved in both killings accountable. Their lives matter and their families deserve justice.
Sign on and stand with us!
Dear Mayor de Blasio,
No family should have to fear losing their loved one at the hands of those sworn to protect. It has been 5 years since the murder of Eric Garner and three years since Delrawn Small’s life was cut short.
Your inaction is sending a message to New Yorkers that the lives of Eric Garner and Delrawn Small do not matter. You have within your power the authority to fire all of the officers involved in killing Eric Garner and Delrawn Small from the police force.
We need justice now,
