The Larnell Bruce Jr. Foundation is 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to promoting love over hate, educating the public about hate crimes, helping hate crime victims deal with the trauma and loss during and beyond the conclusion of a criminal court case, and fighting to change laws to make hate crimes a serious crime with the appropriate punishment.
Our three key areas of focus include:
Educate the public to be more aware of hate crimes and working to stop the cycle of hate. This includes working to add historical racial information to high school curriculum.
Help victims of hate crimes beyond the criminal justice system, advocating and supporting them through this long grieving process. This includes providing culturally-appropriate diversity counseling.
Advocate to enact legislation in Oregon and across the country to recognize the severity of hate crimes and its impact on families and the community.
