HONOLULU (KHNL) - They're tired of graffiti in their neighborhood, and they're doing something about it.

The "tag team" cleans up after their second successful graffiti paint out day.

T.A.G is an acronym for Totally Against Graffiti.

Today, almost 100 volunteers paint over graffiti in five locations in the McCully and Moiliili areas.

The group is made up of community leaders, area businesses, residents, and teenagers.

They're tired of graffiti in their neighborhood, and they're doing something about it.

"I'd rather clean it to see it clean. Nobody's going to do it but us, so I'd rather just put in the effort," says Willuth Luther, volunteer.

"You walk all over, it's on the ground, it's all over. They graffittied my tutu's house not too long ago. It's out of hand," says Whitney Brown, volunteer.

T.A.G. is working on a rapid response team to get rid of graffiti as soon as it's found.

If you'd like to volunteer to be a part of the T.A.G. team, contact Mimi Gans, volunteer coordinator, at 252-4005 or via email at tagteamhawaii@gmail.com.
