STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — August 14, 2017. Assembling in Tompkinsville Park – across the street from where Eric Garner was murdered – a diverse group of Staten Islanders held a silent candlelight vigil, standing united against hate in America and remembering Heather Heyer, who was brutally murdered for standing up for her country.
“We are Staten Islanders. We are New Yorkers. We are Americans. We stand united against hate.”
