Institute Targets Supremacists' Flags

Human rights activists in Coeur d’Alene have decided to fight flags with flags. For months, people have been walking into the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene asking what they can do about two nearby residences flying white supremacist flags, said Rachel Dolezal, the institute’s education director. The institute’s staff and volunteers brainstormed a response and decided to create a flag of their own, this one emblazoned with a human rights message. They are encouraging residents to fly the flags in their neighborhoods and use them to establish “hate-free zones” throughout the region/Alison Boggs, SR. More here.

Question: Would you be interested in flying a human rights flag at your home in an attempt to establish a 'hate-free zone' in your neighborhood? Or do you think this idea will fly?
