The Game along with anti-gang activists, Police Chief Charlie Beck, Will.I.Am., and gang members gathered at a community center in Los Angeles on Sunday to bring an end to gang violence. 

The Game shared a powerful story about the recent loss of a former gang member he grew up with in foster care before calling on the crowd to make the world a better, less violent place. He shared the treaty with fans on Instagram, writing, "We each have to take the initiative to create change within ourselves before we can ask anyone else to do so..... I am responsible for myself & I offer my hand to anybody from anywhere to shake it...... I LOVE ALL MY BROTHERS & I want you to LIVE homie..... If you feel the same way, reach out & extend your hand to someone & let's alter our futures one person at a time !!!!! I signed it 1st......... The opportunity to save lives is yours too if you want it....... OUR CHILDRENS FUTURE IS AT STAKE."

The Game has been vocal about building a better bridge between police and their community. He and Snoop Dogg led a march to police headquarters in Los Angeles earlier this month following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castle. They met with the mayor and police chief to discuss ways to improve things between cops and minorities.
