42] – Nonviolence International presents Jonathan Kuttab's Book Launch, "The Truth Shall Set You Free," on Thurs., Sept. 28 from noon to 1:30 PM ET.  This event is hosted by Maia Carter Hallward, with Special Guest Mubarak Awad, NVI Founder. Welcome Jonathan Kuttab to speak about his memoir along with special guest Mubarak Awad. Kuttab is a co-founder of Nonviolence International, a Palestinian Human Rights lawyer-and Christian pacifist. In this marvelous memoir, he takes us on a personal journey from anger and thoughts of violence to his deep commitment to unrelenting peaceful activism. Be forewarned: This is not the journey of a starry-eyed idealist. It’s a true life story of a man who has witnessed violence, terrible injustice, suffering and heart-wrenching losses. Three of the chapters are devoted to nonviolence and the work of his cousin Mubarak Awad who will also be joining the book launch. After discussion of the book, there will be an exploration about nonviolence and the future of Palestinians and Israelis today. RSVP at
