At its July 2016 Assembly, Mennonite Church Canada passed a resolution calling for greater advocacy for peace and justice in Palestine and Israel. Since then, a network of working groups and individuals across Canada has helped to implement the resolution through calls to prayer, workshops and sermons, educational resources, and calls to economic and political action. This page offers key documents from MC Canada, and from our active Mennonite Church Manitoba working group.
