Lorenzo Lamar Ward: March 7, 1983~September 1, 2012
Our hearts are heavy with the loss of Lorenzo. He was a lively spirit born to our beloved Princess Beverly. And he shouldn’t have been Oakland’s 81st homicide of the year. The blood of too many young people of color has flowed on our streets — breaking our hearts and devastating far too many families in our communities. In Lorenzo’s memory we will organize for racial and economic justice and work to build a better world.
