Holy Land Trust’s Founder Sami Awad's Wonderful Take on Active Nonviolence
Sami Awad is the founder of Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem, Palestine for which Nonviolence International serves as the US fiscal sponsor. Holy Land Trust is committed to supporting, training, and developing nonviolence in the Holy Land. Sami was influenced by the teaching of his uncle, Mubarak Awad, the Palestinian activist who promoted nonviolent resistance to the occupation during the First Intifada (popular uprising) and was arrested and deported by the Israeli government for his peaceful/nonviolent activities. Sami promotes and engages in nonviolent truth-telling, healing, and transformation work in Palestine and worldwide. Sami Awad holds an Honorary Doctoral Degree in Divinity from the Chicago Theological Seminary, a Master’s Degree in International Relations from the American University in Washington D.C., and an undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of Kansas.
