In the wake of the 2016 resolution, CommonWord has assembled extensive resources (books, videos and curricula) related to Palestine and Israel. Downloadable resources generated specifically for resolution follow-up include:

“A Cry for Home” from Mennonite Central Committee

While not formally linked to Mennonite Church Canada PIN, this public-awareness campaign began in the year following Mennonite Church Canada’s resolution. Drawing on MCC’s seven decades of partnerships in Palestine and Israel, “Cry for Home” includes a raft of informative fact sheets, videos and calls to action. It has also developed a land exercise, a hands-on learning experience about the Palestinian experience. Mennonite Church Canada PIN working groups and individuals draw heavily—and gratefully—on Cry for Home resources.
