This community was created after the realisation that many people have shared very similar experiences living here in the UK to allow people to come together as a collective.
It aims to empower people who identify as East or Southeast Asian and also educate people on how to be better allies, and to work with local organisations and government to help change policies to make this society more inclusive.

Our aim is for everyone to feel safe, respected and proud.”
