United Church partners in the Philippines continue to fear for their lives because of extrajudicial killings and a culture of impunity in the region. Join the United Church and KAIROS Canada in calling for justice for the extrajudicial killings of human rights defenders, Indigenous peoples and community leaders, members of progressive organizations, and civilians in the Philippines.

Visit our Take Action to learn more about the situation and how you can call on officials to get involved.

In April 2013 the United Church, along with the National Farmers Union and other Canadian groups and farmers, publicly opposed the release of GM alfalfa.
