At maaple we are gathering support for our movement to support our three aims. Before we act upon achieving our aims, we will gather support from individuals and institutions to show that we are a voice for everyone that wants equality, education and awareness to prevail.

Aim 1 # Equality
The Equality Act 2010 is, mostly, a brilliant piece of protective legislation, designed to protect people in Britain from discrimination, harassment and victimisation based upon “protected characteristics”. However, it is flawed.
The protected characteristics include sexual orientation. Section 12 of the Equality Act 2010 defines sexual orientation as:
Discrimination against asexual spectrum people
There are concerns that discrimination, prejudice and hate against asexual spectrum people will increase as awareness of asexuality increases. Currently, there is little legislation to discourage any prejudice against asexuals and, consequently, there is no legal framework to support asexual spectrum people in litigation proceedings.
Aim 2 # Education
Thousands of children are feeling lost, confused, disconnected and disillusioned.
Aim 3 # Awareness
Sometimes it is challenging to be openly asexual.
