END GANG LIFE

end-gang-life-text

End Gang Life was created to be an emotional and visually impactful anti-gang initiative that uses engaging and powerful imagery and language that speaks to people and will hopefully give youth a fresh perspective on what gangs really are, give communities a rallying point around which they can mobilize against gangs in their neighbourhoods, and make gangsters pause and have a second thought about their life choices.

END GANG LIFE

A call to action to end gang life in British Columbia

END GANG LIFE is a comprehensive gang education, prevention, and awareness initiative that uses bold, emotional, and visually impactful images and messages to:

•  Engage the public about gangs
•  Provide material that educates the public about gangs
•  Prevent youth and young adults from joining gangs
•  Encourage those involved in gang life to exit

The program material complements other CFSEU-BC engagement initiatives and supports other government and police gang prevention and awareness initiatives.
