Central to daikon*’s work is to maintain accountability to people of colour and communities of colour such that we stay true to our manifesto: to be a platform for Asian voices that are so often underrepresented and undervalued in mainstream political and feminist discourse.
As a result, daikon* has a zero tolerance policy towards sexism, racism, transphobia, ableism, classism, and homophobia. We do not police race, gender, or sexuality; we believe in collaboration on the basis of an ethic of solidarity, care, and good faith. We aim to center the voices of survivors of violence, whether that is sexual violence or state violence. We aim to provide a safe and secure space for our communities to interact, engage, and care for one another.
daikon* operates non-hierarchically. We make decisions as a collective, to the end of sharing our opinions, celebrating our creativity and building up a stronger collective voice for South East/East Asians.
If you have a concern with our activities or our content, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org – as a team of unpaid volunteers, we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
