Erie Chapter of Free Mom Hugs Reactivated
After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the Erie chapter of Free Mom Hugs has been reactivated. Free Mom Hugs is a nonprofit organization that was started in Oklahoma City in 2014, by mom Sarah Cunningham. After her son came out, Sarah noticed that many LGBTQIA+ youth were being ostracized by their families. Sarah wanted to do something tangible to help and, as a result, Free Mom Hugs was born. After our debut at Erie Pride 2022, we are now available to bring hugs to your LGBTQIA+ supporting organization. If you have an event or activity that you would interested in having Free Mom Hugs attend, please send an email to Kim Perrine, chapter co-coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reach us on Facebook through the Erie Chapter of Free Mom Hugs group page.
