COVID-19 Safety Not Stigma is a portrait campaign by South Seattle photographer Sharon H. Chang to combat increased racism against people of color during the coronavirus pandemic; raise awareness about the disproportionate impacts of the 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 online with humanizing words, as well as news and updates. The campaign, supported by 4Culture, launched on social media April 7.
