An Appeal from UMKR


UMKR has important church legislation for our denomination's global General Conference, to be held in 2021. These resolutions address:

protecting Palestinian children,
defending the right to boycott,
divesting from the bonds of occupation governments,

and other timely justice issues.


We also have BIG PLANS for educating A LOT of people throughout our church about Palestinian rights, with literature, displays, events, meals, and witness actions!


With very limited resources, UMKR has made

a BIG  impact in the global United Methodist Church! Groundbreaking divestment and boycott actions by the UMC would never have happened withoutUMKR's advocacy AND all the extraordinary partners and allies who helped us.


General Conference is always our BEST OPPORTUNITY to make an impact for Palestinian rights throughout our denomination, on four continents.


But if we are to succeed advocating for justice

with over 5000 United Methodists who come to General Conference from around the world...

WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR HELP!


EVERY DONATION – large, medium, or small –
