In San Francisco, an organization is seeing a surge in volunteers offering to patrol the city's famous Chinatown in the wake of recent attacks.

Volunteers with United Peace Collaborative are trained by professional security guards to de-escalate potentially violent situations and watch for suspicious activity.

They also check in with local business owners and help tourists.

Volunteers say it's a way to show some humanity to others.
