Rev. Al Sharpton, Founder and President of the National Action Network (NAN), will deliver the eulogy for Brianna Grier in Atlanta on Thursday, August 11, at the request of her family. The 28-year-old mother’s death in police custody has sparked calls for justice over how she was arrested and subsequently treated.

Ben Crump, the nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney, will deliver a call to action.

Police were called to Grier’s Sparta, Georgia, home on July 15 as she experienced a mental health crisis. Grier was taken into custody when they arrived and forced into the back of a squad car. She was handcuffed and not wearing a seatbelt. The rear passenger-side door was not closed, however, and she fell out of the car once it was in motion.

Grier went into a coma and died from her injuries six days later at an Atlanta hospital.

During a Sunday night appearance on Rev. Sharpton’s MSNBC show Politics Nation, Grier’s family requested he deliver the eulogy for Grier this Thursday.
