UNO Students to Wipe Out Omaha Graffiti Nov. 12
Omaha - The Association of Latino American Students (ALAS) and Latino Men of Impact at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) have teamed up to host this year’s Graffiti Abatement event, which will be held Saturday, Nov. 12.
This event serves to clean graffiti off of walls, fences and even street signs that have been vandalized with graffiti.
The graffiti cleanup project was organized by Latino Men of Impact with the help of Councilman Garry Gernandt and the Crystal Rhoades of the Neighborhood Center. The two groups will meet at Saturday at 9 a.m. at Metropolitan Community College South Campus where they will receive quick instructions and pick up clean-up kits for the day.
