The 2024 New Voices campaign on Wednesday debuted its first media release, a one-minute clip on Instagram featuring dozens of celebrities and entertainers.

The video begins and concludes with supermodel Cindy Crawford, who says, “It’s a new year with new voices,” before people start to introduce themselves in quick cuts of videos, including Brooke Burke, Mayim Bialik, Tara Strong, Hayden Panettiere and “Disturbed” singer David Draiman.   

When “Stranger Things” actor Brett Gelman appears, after introducing himself he declares, “I’m a proud Jew.”

Actress Amy Smart said, “With so much chaos and tragedy happening in the world right now, I am supporting and standing with my Jewish brothers and sisters against antisemitism.”

The campaign’s founder, Samantha Ettus, said that the effort sought to counter how “propaganda has made people think that standing up to antisemitism is political—and it’s not. It is just as acceptable to stand up against antisemitism as it is any form of hate towards any ethnic group.”
