Take action: Support United Methodist Church divestment campaign

UMKR and FOSNA are coalition members of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.

United Methodist Kairos Response (UMKR) is an international movement in the United Methodist Church responding to the "Kairos Palestine Document," an urgent plea from Christians in the Holy Land for decisive action supporting a just peace in Israel/Palestine. 

UMKR is working to put actions behind the denomination's words and seeks to align the church's investments with its resolutions opposing the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land. To that end, members of UMKR have written a resolution that would direct UMC boards and agencies to divest from corporations that sustain and profit from the occupation. FOSNAhas already endorsed this resolution as a group and now we are asking YOU to please endorse as an individual!

This legislation will go to the UMC's next General Conference, being held in Tampa, Florida, April 25-May 5, 2012.
