“Please come and join us in pledging to use our collective social influence to help end any more senseless deaths by reforming and reframing police officers practices, policies, and procedures,” Simmons wrote in an announcement on Facebook.

This isn’t the mogul’s first time issuing a call to action. In 2014, he and Jay Z urged New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to sign an executive order to assign special prosecutors to future cases of police violence.
