(KCPQ) A new billboard in South Tacoma is raising eyebrows – not for what it’s selling, but for the message that it’s trying to send.
A group called Tacoma Against Nazis paid to erect a billboard along Pacific Avenue to fight what it sees as white supremacy encroaching into their neighborhood.
The organization says its group of about 100 people have been fighting against a local business they believe has ties to white supremacy. And while for now it’s just the billboard, the group promises to become more active in their fight against injustice.

“It’s meant to be pretty shocking,” said Tacoma Against Nazis co-founder Halley Knigge. “The fact there are groups coming to town who are making it impossible for diverse populations to live in safety and comfort in their own city is horrifying.”
