Since Dec. 2016,  UMKR has had a (slightly) new

name:  United  Methodists  for  Kairos  Response.

United Methodists are responding to the urgent call from Palestinian
Christians in Kairos Palestine:  A Moment of Truth,  to end the Israeli occupation and achieve a just peace in the Holy Land.. UMKR seeks – through nonviolent action and in partnership with our Palestinian sisters and brothers in Christ – freedom, justice and equality for all Palestinians and Israelis.

Giving Changes the World

With limited resources, UMKR has

had a remarkable impact in the global United Methodist Church! Historic divestment and boycott actions could not have happened without the vital support of those who believe in the cause of Palestinian rights. Please give whatever you can today, so that our work can continue. And rest assured that every donation, large or small,

helps the cause!

Over the last nine years UMKR has  built an activist network in dozens of annual conferences, and we have educated tens of thousandsof United Methodists on the recent history of the Holy Land and the facts on the ground today, especially in the occupied Palestinian territories.

UMKR welcomes donations from all those who share our goal of freedom, justice and equality for

all Palestinians and Israelis and who believe in and support the use of nonviolent methods to achieve that goal.

We organize United Methodist support for boycott campaigns that have a real impact in Israel/Palestine: companies moving out of the Israeli settlements  and dropping contracts with Israel to support those settlements.

We have mobilized support in many regional bodies, independent UMC caucuses, and the church's primary investing agency, Wespath, for ethical investing to support and protect Palestinian human rights. The result has been groundbreaking, internationally celebrated divestment divestment actions by the UMC


United Methodists for Kairos Response is leading the work in the United Methodist Church for meaningful church actions that support freedom, justice, and equality for all Palestinians and Israelis.

In the Kairos Palestine Document, Christians in the Holy Land have called out to fellow Christians around the world for just such actions.

UMKR was founded to answer their call and, with limited resources and dedicated volunteer activism, we have had a significant impact in our church and the world:
