We’ve covered the transformation of McKinley Hill a lot recently. There’s an anti-crime march scheduled for this Saturday:

From the Dome Top Neighborhood Alliance:

WHAT: Anti-Crime Picket March.

WHO: Everyone who cares about a better future for our community.

WHEN: Saturday, Feb 16, 11:00 AM.

WHERE: We will meet in the parking lot of The Tacoma Christian Center, 3523 E Mckinley Avenue (across the street from Fergies Restaurant)

WHY: To demonstrate our unity, strength and resolve to the drug dealers, thieves, prostitutes and molesters.

HOW: Bring a hand-made sign with your special message for the criminals and for City Hall.

Bring a bull-horn if you have one available, and definitely bring your voice.

We will congregate at 11:00 AM sharp, take three minutes to greet and organize.

We will march to the drug-dealing epicenter at 34th and Mckinley.

We will maintain our calm, our unity, and civility.

With enough time and numbers, we will also march to other nearby crime havens.
