The E.R.I.C. Initiative Foundation presents the 10th Annual Gala!

The E.R.I.C. Initiative Foundation is proud to announce to the 10th Annual Gala to commemorate the anniversary of the death of our beloved Eric Garner. Join us to learn all about the work of the E.R.I.C. Initiative Foundation, and its new focus on community advocacy, and a commitment to social justice.

What we Do.

The E.R.I.C. Initiative Foundation is a social justice non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating systemic mistreatment of marginalized communities.

EIF is committed to advocating for justice and accountability for victims of police brutality, gun violence, and racial inequality. We recognize that these are not isolated issues, but rather those that are deeply intertwined with other forms of institutional oppression and trauma. Therefore, we strive to provide services and resources that are comprehensive and tailored to the needs of the individuals and families we serve.


Gwen Carr, Mother of Eric Garner, Champions Social Justice in NFL Pre-Game Spotlight.

WE ARE HONORED! Our hearts are flowing with love and gratitude. During the Super Bowl pre-game show, CBS Sports and NFL on CBS interviewed Gwen Carr (Mother of Eric Garner), Samaria Rice (Mother of Tamir Rice) and Micheal Brown, Sr. (Father of Micheal Brown) to highlight the injustices of their deaths due to police violence. Thank you to the #SuperBowlXLVIII Champions Seattle Seahawks’ players Doug Baldwin, Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman who spoke up and supported the fight to end these injustices against African-Americans in America. The ERIC Initiative Foundation is very grateful to see the Seattle Seahawks players keeping Eric’s name alive and fighting for justice.
