Peace with Justice Director
General Board of Church and Society
United Methodist Church
The United Methodist Church stands for peace and justice. Mark Harrison brings that calling to life. He leads the church’s peace and justice program and promotes Peace with Justice Sunday, one of the UMC’s eight special Sundays. The words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the marches to end racism and segregation are embedded in his soul.
Mark has lived and worked throughout the world. He’s worked with those living in some of the poorest parts of the world. He’s seen the aftermath of war and the devastating loss of friends, family and entire communities. He has seen firsthand how faith can aid the work of peace and justice. And that’s why he’s dedicated his life to working for peace and justice.
Mark has visited Israel/Palestine three times, most recently to attend the Kairos Palestine and Sabeel conferences in December 2019. He is the GBCS liaison to the UMKR Steering Committee.

New Administration, New Congress:
New Opportunities for Palestinian Rights
Wednesday, 13 January 2021
10am PT, 1pm ET (US, Canada) / 6pm UTC / 8pm Palestine
As a new Congress takes their seats in early January, and as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are inaugurated later in the month, MFSA and UMKR offer this webinar to help us better understand what we might expect from the new Congress and new Administration related to Palestinian rights. Who will the key players be in Congress? What legislation might come forward? How do we best advocate for Palestine with Congress and in our own locales? What strategies can we use to deepen our influence in D.C.?
