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!

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.

Join Us

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.
