The Portland Graffiti Situation



Portland is spending $4 million on graffiti cleanup, but will fines or jail time make the city safer? Discover why it’s so easy to write graffiti in Portland.

This eye-opening exploration reveals what’s really behind the ‘graffiti war’ that nobody seems to be winning.
