We aim to highlight how the British Chinese can make a very real difference on issues affecting themselves and their communities on a daily basis. The fact that c.30% of the British Chinese community are not even on the UK electoral register is hard proof of how disenfranchised some of us are compared to other communities.
Ultimately, our aim is to develop and put in place a practical, lasting framework that will focus on the following areas:
We want to foster reciprocal relationships between ourselves, those keen to get involved in politics and those already established in the political arena – constantly developing through contribution and collaboration eventually strengthening our political stance and unity as a community.
Our vision is all-inclusive and non-discriminatory. Everyone is invited to get involved, ranging from migrant Chinese who are unsure of their political rights all the way through to prospective MPs requiring support and a platform for promotion.
