Safety Not Stigma is a portrait campaign by Seattle-based photographer Sharon H. Chang to help combat increased racism against people of color during the pandemic, raise awareness about the disproportionate impacts of coronavirus on communities of color, and prioritize safety instead of stigma by the public. Portraits show Asian and Black Americans wearing masks and are shared with humanizing words, updates, and announcements. The campaign, supported by 4Culture and the COVID-19 Community Response Alliance, launched on social media April 7. You can see more at Sharon H. Chang on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
