The Larchmont Safe Streets and other neighborhood organizations are marching down Pacific Avenue in Tacoma this evening to make their presence felt in the neighborhood.

Their stretch of Pacific Avenue – from South 72nd to South 96th streets – is improving but still a gathering place for prostitutes, drug dealers and gang members. The group will meet in the parking lot of Anahuac Family Mexican Restaurant at 5 p.m. and march about an hour after that.

"We just want to let everyone know we’re here," said Kathy Martin, a volunteer with the organization.
