The Arthur Miller Jr., A Daughter Never Forgets Foundation is a 501(c)3 Public Charity founded in 2016 by the surviving family of Arthur Miller Jr. to continue his legacy of giving.
Arthur was a devoted husband, loving and playful father, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and highly respected community leader in the Crown Heights, New York area. Arthur’s promising life was cut short in 1978 after an interaction with police that led to him being handcuffed and ultimately placed into the deadly ‘choke-hold’ that killed him. This tactical maneuver originated in martial arts and has since been outlawed by the state of New York and parts of California. The backlash from the community around the circumstances of his death was enormous. See the following articles covering these events. (You will leave this site)
Arthur Miller Jr. constantly dedicated his spare time to serving others. Entrepreneurship afforded him the time and resources to do what was most important: Give Back. Other men in the community maintained gainful employment with his construction business. During the summer months when school was out of session he and his wife offered lunch to children while their parents worked, some may have gone hungry without their help. Arthur arranged and helped cover the costs of field trips that allowed neighborhood children to explore places they otherwise couldn’t afford like the Poconos Mountains and Hershey Park. Arthur’s generous spirit, loving heart, and community focus live on through the efforts of the foundation, and the tagline “A Daughter Never Forgets” ensures the tremendous loss his family suffered will not be forgotten.
