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

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

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

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 made a significant impact in our church and the world.
