G6 Billion to Gather

A local group is organizing an event that would give countries that are not affiliated with the G20 countries a voice. Wanda Guthrie, a G6 Billion organizer, says there are 192 sovereign countries within the United Nations that will not be recognized. On September 20, after a variety of guests speakers, she says there will be a journey to Point State Park, carrying the flags of those countries. Guthrie says it brings awareness to locals, and shows how the G20 Summit should be more inclusive.

The event will take place at the Smithfield United Church of Christ downtown, at 2 p.m..
