We acknowledge that identifiable social media data from marginalized populations can be used to criminalize and incarcerate communities of color. We also acknowledge that the data we collect and methods have the potential to cause harm if used improperly or fall into the wrong hands. As such, the SAFElab has developed a set of ethical guidelines describing our research process, collaborations with data science, and dissemination efforts. The nature of our work requires proactive, iterative, and ever changing ethical considerations in order to prevent any potential harm that may come to communities with which we work and from which our data originates. The following ethical guidelines are a first step in confronting the challenges that arise from our work on social media to include the use of artificial intelligence as a tool for violence prevention in marginalized communities.
