What We Do

Sara Cunningham began her journey of becoming an advocate of the LGBTQIA+ community through her relationship with her gay son. She founded Free Mom Hugs in 2014 and since that time many parents and allies across the country joined the movement to accept, love and support the LGBTQIA community.

Free Mom Hugs became an established 501(c)(3) non profit organization in 2018 to fight for human rights for all.


We believe in the power of education when it comes to the LGBTQIA+ community. Through our programs and initiatives, we provide opportunities for presentations, panel discussions and conversations. We foster change for corporations, high schools, churches, universities, and many other groups.


We strive to elevate the LGBTQIA+ community through our work because we value representation. Visibility can open people’s minds and encourage change in our society. We want our work to inspire the LGBTQIA+ community to be who they are and to encourage allies to stand in the gap for the community we hold dear.


We tell our stories to inspire conversations that allow us to connect and heal our differences. We create opportunities for learning through our speaking engagements, webinars, interactive discussions and other programs that provide valuable dialogue regarding the LGBTQIA+ community.
