Garner's oldest daughter, Erica, became a prominent activist and outspoken critic of police misconduct after her father's death. Eric Garner's pleas of "I can't breathe!" as he was put into an illegal chokehold by officer Pantaleo helped galvanized the Black Lives Matter movement.

"I have had the privilege of joining with her at a number of events and was deeply impressed with her courage and insights". She noted, in the same interview, that Kalief Browder's mother died of a broken heart. Doctors said the pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which was later found to be enlarged.
