The Asian American Federation has released a series of posters created by various illustrators to raise money for ‘Hope Against Hate’ and to spread awareness of racial stereotyping.
A new poster campaign by the Asian American Federation hopes to highlight racial discrimination and raise money for the ‘Hope Against Hate’ charity in New York City.
The organisation has released ten unique posters created by artists of varying ages. Each one paints a distinct portrait of a city or borough, including New York City, Seattle, and San Diego, and are available to purchase on the official campaign website.

The common question ‘where are you really from?’ was the focus of this project. The Asian American Federation says it wants to ‘flip the script’ on stereotyping and racial prejudice, and to emphasise personal stories from the AAPI community that celebrate diverse experiences.
