We need your support.

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.
