Fight graffiti vandalism: Join local cleanup this Saturday

Graffiti/tagging vandals strike anywhere and everywhere – the photo above is a blurred version of a defaced wall back in 2009 at a local school that was getting hit over and over again. Parents fought back there. Wherever you are, you can challenge this kind of vandalism – as long as there’s help. That’s where you come in. You can join a community cleanup this Saturday to paint out graffiti/tagging vandalism in the Delridge area (and if you don’t feel like painting, trash-pickup help is needed in the area too). Meet at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW, at 10 am Saturday (May 18th). This is the start of a graffiti-fighting campaign that organizers expect will also eventually include mural-painting to protect and beautify targeted areas. Questions? Contact David Bestock at Youngstown, or 206-935-2999.

    Would be great to see the citizens of “Nickelsville” help out with this, give back to the community if they are willing.

    Heard a mural was going up in white center this Saturday for this exact reason! More murals, more community outreach to maintain them and let vandals know graffiti wont be tolerated.

    Instead of repainting the areas that are routinely vandalized, why not use anti-graffiti coating to make graffiti removal possible?

Sorry, comment time is over.
