With very limited resources, UMKR has made a major  impact in the global United Methodist Church.

Groundbreaking divestment and boycott actions by the UMC would never have happened without UMKR's advocacy AND the extraordinary partners and allies who have worked with us and supported our efforts.

 If we are to continue advocating for Palestinian rights throughout our international denomination, we need your support.

​Keep Hope Alive: Olive Tree Planting Trip
3-13 February 2023

Palestinian women, men and children are committed to rebuilding their society after years of military occupation — without the use of violence.

Olive grove cultivation is an integral part of the Palestinian culture and economy. Restoring olive groves destroyed by Israeli settlers and armed forces helps reduce the economic losses caused by occupation policies.

Equally important is the opportunity to affirm Palestinian dignity, foster a sense of community and strengthen a commitment to work constructively toward peace-building.

$1200/person, Double Occupancy without airfare; $300 Single Supplement The cost of the trip includes: facilitation purposes $1200–$1500 Estimated round trip airfare to Tel Aviv $500 Deposit required to secure participation Total anticipated cost: $2,400 per person, plus incidental expenses
