STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
• SUPPORT: The purpose of the Bilingual-Multilingual Interest Section (B-MEIS) is to support and promote all multilingual learners' linguistic repertoires and multiliteracy skills as fundamental to the acquisition of a second or additional language.
• ELEVATE: The IS believes that additive and dynamic approaches must be endorsed and implemented in educational institutions in the interests of students from diverse backgrounds.
• SUSTAIN: The IS supports the opportunity and right of all individuals to develop, construct and maintain a diverse range of cultural, linguistic, and literate repertoires of practice.
• TRANSFORM: The IS works to foster collaborative relations of power and address inequitable power relations in society and empower minority students to use their own repertoires of practice.
