Wilmington celebrates International Day of Peace

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – It’s the International Day of Peace, and one local organization is working to spread the love here in Wilmington.
The Grandmothers of Peace organization held a local event today at Hugh MacRae park.
More than dozen people joined together for this 10th  annual event. Organizer Lynn Heritage says in light of recent violence in our country and across our state, today is even more important.
Supporters listened to music, played the tambourine, belly danced and spoke out about peace.
