CMEP works to encourage U.S. policies that actively promote a just, lasting, and comprehensive resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ensuring security, human rights and religious freedom for all the people of the region.

CMEP is a coalition of 21 national Church denominations and organizations in Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. Each of these denominations and organizations is represented on the CMEP Board of Directors, which sets CMEP’s mission, positions and policy. Decisions are made by consensus of this group.

CMEP began its work in 1984 believing that the policy perspectives and experience in the Middle East of our member churches and organizations should be better known and directly influence U.S. foreign policy. Our work is based on the understanding that sound and balanced U.S. policy is crucial to achieving and maintaining just and stable relationships in the Middle East.
