Hawai`i Convention Center employees joined a group of state government officials, organizations, community members, schools, and businesses to remove graffiti and clean up public areas around Honolulu during the Community Wide Cleanup & Graffiti Paint-Out event on October 29, 2011.

More than 1,000 volunteers joined clean up efforts sponsored by Totally Against Graffiti (T.A.G.) and organized by the APEC Hawai`i Host Committee in preparation for November’s Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings.  Cleanup locations included the Kapahulu, McCully, and Moiliili neighborhoods.

Efforts were featured by Hawai`i News Now on October 29 :
