2021 Equity and Interdependence Curriculum

2021 Equity and Interdependence Conversations

Next up: December 21st, 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT

RSVP to Monthly Conversations

December’s Conversation will be with three members of The Student Immigrant Movement (SIM), the only undocumented youth-led organization in Massachusetts with growing chapters in Greater Boston, New Bedford, Central Mass, and North Shore. Throughout SIM’s existence, we have identified, recruited, and developed immigrant leaders of varying statuses in local cities to improve their communities using strategic and motivational campaigns. SIM has stopped deportations, stopped anti-immigrant amendments from passing, pushed the implementation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), DREAM Schools, and more. Join us as we talk with Sabrina, Maria, and Karina.


The theme for December is Leading: Youth-led advocacy for undocumented immigrants.

iBme’s Equity and Interdependence Conversations are designed to further institutionalize our commitment to our values. Through this yearlong co-learning program, the whole iBme community is invited to explore and engage with monthly themes of equity and interdependence and apply their experiences and perspectives in a diverse learning environment.

iBme’s ecosystem consists of standing committees, working groups, community stakeholders, and our external world. For more information regarding iBme’s ecosystem and collaborative leadership, please visit our Equity and Interdependence Dashboard.

Support this Work

iBme’s Equity + Interdependence Fund

We believe that justice and equity are at the core of mindfulness and compassion. If you believe this too, we ask for your support in helping us to live out these values. We are dedicating more resources than ever to this work including two staff positions on our Collaborative Leadership Team. To learn more about our goals and ongoing projects, please visit our Equity + Interdependence Dashboard and explore our 10-Year Progress Report.

We have now reached a “no turning back” mark in our journey to disperse historically consolidated power within dominant identity groups to a multiculturally-led organization, and to further integrate equity and justice work into the growth of our programs. As we continue on our journey towards a world free of domination and injustice, we commit to leveraging our resources each year to facilitate a safe container for the communities that have often been neglected from the formal mindfulness ecosystem as it is structured today. We commit to doing the difficult work of divesting from racist, patriarchal, and heteronormative modes of access, communication, and decision-making and investing in opportunities that are equitable, grassroots-driven, and liberating.


Equity + Interdependence Fund

Help us build capacity and make structural changes to live out our values of Equity + Interdependence in everything we do.
