The family of Eric Garner and local activists will join the Reverend Al Sharpton along with members of the National Action Network and NAN youth to stage protests at NYPD Headquarters in downtown Manhattan on Friday.

The rally is a call for the U.S. Justice Department to step in & prosecute the NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner.

Garner died last July in Staten Island after a police officer put him in a chokehold for 15 seconds. The New York City Medical Examiner's Office concluded that Garner died as a partial result of the chokehold.

Back in December, a grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who placed Garner in the chokehold.

The families of Eric Garner, along with advocates against police brutality, have been organizing protests to indict Officer Pantaleo ever since the jury's decision.

The march will begin tomorrow at One Police Plaza Headquarters at 4:30pm and continue on to the Federal Courthouse at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn.
