Zack commented on The Beacon: Let Us Know You're Safe

Hi Mary-Lynn, building on your question about cost, I'd like to add the question: might there be communities that would a) be willing to bear some of the cost (whether that be inconvenience or monetary) because they are particularly at risk of being targeted (e.g. albinos, homosexuals, women) and b) be able to serve as an early warning sign for more widespread violence? My thought is that if some individuals felt more secure by checking in and/or would be willing to work together to reduce violence, perhaps these would be the same people who are generally more sensitive to changes in the tone of the community. What do you think?
