Mizin Shin’s current campaign Use Your Voice #StopAsianHate started in response to rising hate crimes as a way to speak out against racially motivated prejudice and violence. The message is being translated into a variety of languages to engage diverse linguistic communities. There are two versions of the prints being made: (1) Blind embossed prints—these are being traded in exchange for donations to organizations supporting AAPI communities, and (2) Screenprints—produced for free public distribution to raise awareness.
Shin’s prints have been traded in exchange for over $3,200 in donations to organizations such as: Stop Asian American Pacific Islander Hate, Advancing Justice Asian Law Caucus, Asian American Leadership Delegation, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Vancouver Chinatown Foundation, and AAPI Women Lead.
So far, the prints have been translated into Amharic, Arabic, Burmese, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Macedonian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Spanish, Tagalog, Tigrinya, Turkish, and Vietnamese languages, with aims to include additional languages in the near future. All prints are translated by volunteers.
