World Meeting of Popular Movements

World Meeting of Popular Movements

The first U.S. regional World Meeting of Popular Movements will take place in Modesto, California from February 16 to February 19, 2017. Attendance is by invite only, though everyone is welcomed to join the meeting via live stream.

An initiative of Pope Francis, the World Meeting of Popular Movements’ (WMPM) purpose is to create an “encounter” between Church leadership and grassroots organizations working to address the “economy of exclusion and inequality” (Joy of the Gospel, nos. 53-54) by working for structural changes that promote social, economic and racial justice.

The World Meeting of Popular Movements will bring together hundreds of grassroots leaders from various cultures and communities across the United States with representatives from the Vatican, international grassroots groups, and U.S. Bishops.
