Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, hate crimes against the Asian community have increased significantly.
As a result of this growing hostility, London and NYC-based photographer Sirui Ma has teamed up with the editor-in-chief of art magazine FAR NEAR Lulu Yao Gioiello to launch Artists for Asian American Federation.
This auction initiative will raise money and awareness for the Asian American Federation, a non-profit organization that represents the voice of 70 community based organizations and serves 1.3 million Asian Americans in NYC.
Over 41 creatives have come together to donate and auction off their work in an effort to fight anti-Asian racism.
In case you missed it, Ethiopian photographers and artists are coming together in support of COVID-19 relief efforts with an initiative called Prints for Ethiopia.
