(KSL News) A grassroots effort to eliminate graffiti in Kearns kicked off today.
Volunteers are behind Operation END-GRAF. Today Utah Senator Ed Mayne and his wife joined crews painting and cleaning up graffiti in Kearns.
Organizers say graffiti has a negative impact on our community.
Cathy Harding of the Kearns Crime Prevention Association said, "A lot of the graffiti is gang oriented, and we want to let the gangs know that they cannot use our walls for their communication."
The group hopes the month-long cleanup will help promote pride in the community and get property owners to clean up, as well.
