An Urgent Appeal

from UMKR


Right now, UMKR has important church resolutions for GENERAL CONFERENCE,

MAY 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, resolutions on:

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


GC 2020 is our BEST OPPORTUNITY to once again 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,

IN THE WINTER AND SPRING OF 2020!


Please give as generously as you can, and know that whatever you are able to give

will be gratefully appreciated.


EVERY DONATION – large, medium, or small –
makes a difference in our work!
