NI Opens Office at the UN in NYC


Nonviolence International announces the establishment of our new office near the UN headquarter in New York City. On May 13, 2004, we celebrated the opening with our founder Mubarak Awad, our Executive Director Michael Beer, Finance Director Paul Magno, Treasurer Jonathan Kuttab as well as with David Kirshbaum who will direct the New York office.  We were joined by Mel Duncan of the Nonviolent Peaceforce, John Miller of ETAN and the War Resisters League and others.


With our office in the UN, we are hoping to promote nonviolence and disarmament at the UN programs. This is a big step for our organization. Apart from the UN, our New York office will also serve as the center for our Palestine Media Project, which advocates for accurate reporting for Palestinian dignity and rights in the media.  None of this could have happend without the diligent work of David Kirshbaum.
