Peaceful Relations Asked for in New Billboard Campaign

Seven new white billboards, each with black lettering containing messages regarding peaceful communication and race relations, have shown up along Rapid City's roads. According to the Rapid City Journal article, a group composed of individual donors sponsored the billboards so no one group is tied to the message.  The group simply wants to promote a nonpolitical, message of healing, peace, and reconciliation for the community to reflect on.
