Tl;Dr: Yes, we can.

From Taryn's answer to What's the protocol for requesting a tag warning?

Start with a post on the site's meta. This lets the community weigh in on the request, and also gives a paper trail in the event it is implemented. Figure out both whether this is needed and work on drafting the text for the warning so the CMs have some context and know what wording you think would be good.

Once the community has voted on the post and there is a consensus that it should be done, then you'd need a member of SE Staff to take the next steps.

A site mod should add the tag to the question, which will bring it to the CMs' attention and be added to their backlog through the staff escalation process. If it's been a while since you heard anything, try pinging a Community Manager in chat like a mod-only chat room asking to take a look at the request.

CM escalations are for issues about specific users, so that's not a great option here.
