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,

UMKR & LYNC:
We Are Stronger Together
October 2018 – UMKR has taken an
important step in the vital work of
intersectional justice by joining the
Love Your Neighbor Coalition (LYNC)
in the United Methodist Church.
Our partners in LYNC are: Affirmation, Black Methodists for Church Renewal (BMCR), Fossil Free UMC, MARCHA: Metodistas Asociados Representando la Causa Hispano-Americanos, Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA), Methodists in New Directions (MIND), National Federation of Asian American United Methodists (NFAAUM), Native American International Caucus (NAIC), Pacific Islanders Caucus of United Methodists (PINCUM), Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN), United Methodist Association of Ministers with Disabilities, and Western Methodist Justice Movement (WMJM).
LYNC's mission is "to assure The United Methodist Church is fully open to the presence, love and grace of God offered to all people," and all coalition partners have agreed to work together around the intersections of common justice issues and shared values. The broad range of issues that LYNC addresses include: colonialism and occupation, full inclusion in the church for LGBTQ people, racial justice, immigration justice, and more.
See what the coalition calls on the church to do in our VISION STATEMENT.
