Copyright © United Methodists for Kairos Response. All rights reserved.

Since Dec. 2016,  UMKR has had a (slightly) new

name:  United  Methodists  for  Kairos  Response.

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.

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.
