Tacoma residents will come together tonight to march along the southern end of Pacific Avenue and bring attention to ongoing problems with drugs, gangs and prostitution.

The March Against Crime starts at 6 p.m. Participants will walk along Pacific from South 96th Street to South 72nd. The event is being organized by the Larchmont Safe Streets Block Group

Other Safe Streets groups will participate, including the Lincoln LAWG, Fern Hill Park Alliance Safe Streets and Upper Pacific Avenue groups.

Residents have seen some improvement along the stretch but want to maintain public awareness about the activity.
