Cleaning up graffiti in your neighborhood or a poorer neighborhood near you is a simple way to give back to your community.
Many areas don't have the financial support or the volunteer needed to rid their communities of offensive vandalism to public and private property. Some cities offer programs for volunteers to help get rid of graffiti or supply spray paint to volunteers who offer to cover graffiti. You can help your neighbors by keeping their surroundings beautiful!
Improve your neighborhood by spending a couple hours cleaning up graffiti. Invite a friend or neighbor to help you. Or, organize a group in your neighborhood to take turns ridding your community of graffiti.
Keep a lookout for graffiti in your neighborhood and call the City to alert them about graffiti that needs to be removed.
What a wonderful idea!

Some people work hard on their Art. It depends on which type of graffiti your cleaning up.

People's graffiti art work is a form of expression, bringing creativity and color to our cities. This is not very kind to the people whose art you are erasing. However, certain hateful graffiti is harmful to the public and I do think it would be kind to cover over it so that others do not have to read hate speech. Write your own graffiti with a kind message!

Maybe if the graffiti is rude, but I usually feel graffiti adds colour into a bland world, I love it

I absolutely admire graffiti. It is astounding and beautiful artwork. And it elaborates and emphasizes vibrant and radiant color in areas or places that are otherwise somewhat gloomy. I've seen some intricate masterpieces in the form of graffiti. However, if the graffiti is gang related, or establishing crude and vulgar language, then yes it should absolutely be eliminated. But if it is a drawing or other idea, leave it be.
