All are invited to witness for PEACE and an end to institutional violence in the Nevada Desert.
This special “Easter Desert Witness” comprises two separate groups in separate locations (18 miles apart) working together for environmental justice and an end to terrorism. Please choose which vigil you will attend, and check out NDE’s nonviolent guidelines and the covenant of nonviolence prior to joining either prayer-action.
