A Few Words on our Commitment to Nonviolent Social Change
Not everyone who wants to stop war, nuclear weapons, or who opposes drone strikes shares our commitment to the type of determined but respectful communication that is a hallmark of NDE actions. To the extent that one may view an action as belonging to someone, NDE asks that people coming to actions we organize or co-sponsor review our nonviolence covenant and consider how you can share the space with us in a non-contradictory way. We must not undermine each other's dedication and drive, and we must all speak from our hearts. We must also all remember that what one does, reflects on us all, whether intended or not.

Every Thursday morning there is a Weekly Peace Vigil in Las Vegas:
9:00 to 10:00 a.m. outside the LV Federal Courthouse, 333 LV Blvd. at Bridger or Clark.

19 January: Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade Join Robert & JR on the Parade Route with NDE for the holiday!

4-6 March: Shut Down Creech Forever Party Join Code Pink, Veterans For Peace, and NDE for a dance party of nonviolent loveliness! It all starts with nonviolence training, education about drone assassins, and connecting with our brothers and sisters who have been guilty of RPA warfare.

28 March to 3 April:Sacred Peace Walk 2015

The Sacred Peace Walk (SPW) is Nevada Desert Experience's premier event. This 65-mile, annual pilgrimage to the Nevada National Security Site (Formerly The Nevada Test Site) begins on March 28 2015 and ends on April 3, 2015 with an orientation in Las Vegas and preparation for our six-day event starting on March 29 (Palm Sunday). The Walkers arrive at Peace Camp on Thursday, April 2nd after a day walking in Vegas and three days in the desert. In between is a day of reflection at the Sekhmet Temple, vigils against drones at Creech Air Force Base, and a "Peace-over" Seder. The SPW concludes on "Good Friday," as we greet the sunrise with the Western Shoshone and conclude with a Good Friday liturgy and procession to the entrance to the NTS later in the morning. 

We walk in the footsteps of a long legacy of peace walkers and spiritual leaders to draw attention to the nuclear dangers that continue to threaten our sacred planet and the community of life. Please join us in transforming fears into compassion and apathy into action. As one repeat walker put it last year, "The Sacred Peace Walk reminds us that prayer is an active process to engage in, not a passive wish to indulge in. If you’re not careful, you’ll get sunburns, blisters, and life changing experiences."
