Anti-Graffiti Super Huddle: "Zero Graffiti for a Beautiful City" - April 23, 2009

"Zero Graffiti for a Beautiful City"
April 23, 2009
Hilton San Francisco Financial District Grand Ballroom
750 Kearny Street
2:45 p.m. Registration
3-5 p.m. Program
5-6 p.m. Social Hour.
As someone who works to improve the quality of life and the beauty of the community, you are invited to participate in the Second Anti-Graffiti Super Huddle. At the Huddle, you will receive information about the City's campaign to defeat graffiti vandalism and learn how to get involved. The event will feature guest speakers, neighborhood resource tables, and a social hour where you will meet others who share your concerns and who want to take action.

The City has adopted a zero tolerance policy toward graffiti, and agencies like DPW, MUNI, Recreation and Parks and the School District, are working hard to keep public streets, parks, schools, buildings and buses free of graffiti tagging. San Francisco property owners have been doing their part by quickly removing graffiti to keep it from spreading. There are also hundreds of residents throughout the City who volunteer to remove graffiti in their neighborhoods.

All these efforts have paid off and there is a marked improvement in the way San Francisco looks today. Sadly, graffiti removal costs the City more than $20,000,000 annually - funds that could be spent on badly needed services. Graffiti vandalism will continue to be a drain on the City's limited resources unless we do more to stop it.
Only by coming together as a community, will we be able to defeat graffiti in San Francisco.

Please join us at "Zero Graffiti for a Beautiful City" on April 23rd and help spread the word by inviting others who may be interested in attending. You can register on-line at or call 415-641-2600 to receive additional information about the Anti-Graffiti Super Huddle.
