(PIX11)– While many people were out buying gifts for their loved ones (or for themselves) on Black Friday, there’s a movement working to boycott shopping on this particular day.

Among those was Eric Garner’s daughter Emerald Garner who was made the face of an emotional video that stood against buying on the discount-heavy Black Friday.

Blackout for Human Rights posted a short video titled ‘#Blackout: Emerald Garner Can’t Buy Her Dad a Christmas Present’ asking various families who they were spending holidays with.

It ended with Emerald’s sentimental tribute to her late father who was placed in an illegal chokehold by members of the NYPD.  Medical Examiner ruled it a homicide.
