Advocating for changes to hate crime laws.

Larnell Bruce Jr., known lovingly as “Man Man” to family and friends, was born September 1, 1996. He had an unmistakable passion and energy for life.
Larnell was a beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, and friend, who loved his family deeply. His life was cut short due to a senseless, racially-motivated hate crime.
His death was a tragedy, but his decision to be an organ donor brought pride to his family. His final act of giving saved five people and created new champions for organ donation.
