Since Dec. 2016, UMKR has had a (slightly) new
name: United Methodists for Kairos Response.
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!
See the resolutions that UMKR has submitted, others that we support
and resources for each one.
