UMKR needs your help.
Although General Conference had to be postponed, we still have HUGE plans to reach thousands who will be attending: with headline-making speakers, powerful witness actions, compelling graphic materials, and an interactive display for visitors to learn about Palestinian rights! But these things can't happen unless we have help from all of you who believe in this work.

Please give whatever you are able; it will be gratefully received.

UMKR is an independent grassroots movement in our church, not an official body of the denomination, so we must depend on individual donors to keep our justice work going. Your donation is fully tax-deductible.
