Churches Witnessing with Migrants (CWWM) 9th Consultation – Morocco
December 6 @ 08:00 - December 8 @ 17:00 CET
The 9th Churches Witnessing with Migrants (CWWM) Consultation will be held December 6-8, 2018 in Marrakesh, Morocco. The consultation takes place in the context of the 2018 Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD), as well as the meeting of Heads of State and Government and High Representatives for the UN’s Global Compact on Migration (GCM) that will also take place in Marrakesh.
The CWWM Morocco Consultation meeting will not only register the presence and position of CWWM during the adoption of the GCM and the 10th GFMD but it will also serve as a CWWM meeting for strategic planning for continuing work.
CWWM is an international platform for advocacy and forthright action focused on global migration, particularly forced migration in all its forms. We are organized as a tripartite body of equals that includes migrants and representatives of migrant-serving and faith-based organizations from various faith traditions. In their practice of a tripartite arrangement, they have come to value working together and inclusively on acts of mercy, accompaniment and justice.
