I would like to acknowledge that I live and work on Indigenous land and pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging. I also acknowledge the inherit settler privileges I have as a South Asian. While we demand visibility, it can not be done in good faith without listening to and learning from Blak peoples of so-called Australia.
