UMKR was founded in 2010 by a small group of dedicated United Methodist advocates who wanted to see the United Methodist Church cut its financial ties to the Israeli occupation that our church has long opposed. Since then we have grown to a movement with advocates in over 35 annual conferences and on several continents. We also have expanded our scope of advocacy with several areas of action that you can support.
Want to connect with local United Methodists and allies? Find others in your conference or region who are justice advocates for Israel/Palestine. There may be a conference task force already or one about to get started. We may also know of allied groups that are active in your area. Contact us to find out what is happening in your region: email@example.com.
See our organizational structure below, and find out more about our
areas of work here. Contact our committee chairpersons at the email addresses below, to inquire about the work of these committees and how you might support them:
