Anti-Racism

Peter Lindbergh

Gemma Chan has long been shifting the needle around gender and race representation in Hollywood, but over the past year, the actor’s activism off-screen has taken precedence. Disturbed by a rise in hate crimes against east and south-east Asian people (ESEA) in the UK, Chan has helped to launch a national #StopAsianHate campaign.

Joining forces with a number of prominent individuals – including European editorial director, Vogue, and British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, and designers Alexa Chung, Prabal Gurung and Huishan Zhang – the fund, which will provide grants to grassroots organisations supporting ESEA and broader communities, was founded at a tipping point for the attacks against minority groups. In London alone, recorded assaults on ESEA people have tripled over the last year, with many more hate crimes going under the radar owing to the victims’ fears around reporting them.
