Answering the urgent call from Palestinian Christians 
~ in Kairos Palestine:  A Moment of Truth ~
for effective action to end the Israeli occupation and achieve a
just peace in the Holy Land.

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.


Local Advocacy

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:
