The Justice for Our Desert event started with a Saturday morning Desert Appreciation discussion and walk at the Sunrise Trailhead north of the Las Vegas Clark County Wetlands Park then progressed to a day of education, music, and activity at The Center on Maryland Parkway. Miss AyeVee, Vera Anderson, Seamus Knight, Miko, Silverscape, and DJ Green Lion provided music and education. Food was shared from the Las Vegas Catholic Worker.

Sunday the Campaign Nonviolence portion of the event convened at Huntridge Circle Park on Maryland Parkway. Music was by Chris Grasso, Beau, and DJ Green Lion. Food was shared by Food Not Bombs Las Vegas and the LVCW.

On Monday 6 of 7 participants felt moved to be arrested for peacefully trespassing onto the Nevada National Security Site. Lunch was at the Sekhmet Temple followed by a peaceful vigil at Creech AFB.
