British supermodel Naomi Campbell is fronting a US poster campaign to highlight the issue of Anti-Semitism.
Campbell, from Streatham, south London, is appearing in one of three dramatic posters that feature the tag-line "Anti-Semitism is Anti-Me" which will appear on several hundred phone boxes in New York as part of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) campaign.
"The new campaign, aimed to reach and engage a broad and diverse audience, is designed to change the perception that anti-Semitism is strictly a problem for Jews," said Abraham H Foxman, ADL National Director. "Anti-Semitism is everyone's problem. Anti-Semitism in a society is an expression of a hatred of the other, it is contrary to our values of democracy, diversity and acceptance."
The other two faces shown on the "Anti-Semitism is Anti-Me" campaign are Lutheran Christian minister Kathleen Rusnak and a young Asian-American child called Jacob.
