Cathy Sultan "a native of Washington, D.C. lived in Beirut, Lebanon from 1969 to 1983. Her memoir "A Beirut Heart:One Woman's War," published by Scarletta Press in November 2005, recounts her family's survival during the Lebanese civil war. In her second book "Israeli and Palesetinian Voices: A Dialogue with Both Sides", due to be published by Scarletta in March 2006, Cathy attempts to open eyes to the human realities of life in Israel-Palestine through interviews she conducted in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

"Cathy brings her expertise to NPF where she coordinates programs designed to educate NPF members about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. These include working with Partners for Peace, a Washington-based NGO, to co-sponsor nation-wide tours of "Jerusalem Women Speak:Three Women, Three Faiths, One Shared Visiion," working with the Bereaved Family Circle to bring Israelis and Palestinians who have lost loved ones to the conflict to tour the US and finally, initiating Israeli-Palestinian Living Roiom Dialogue Groups across the country. Anyone interested in helping Cathy with her work can contact the NPF office." [1]
