Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2015
Moms for Marijuana International (MFMI), founded by Serra Frank in 2005 whose vision was adopted by Executive Director Cheryl Shuman in 2014, recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary on April 20th, 2015.
In conjunction with the anniversary celebration, MFMI is proud to announce the launch of a marijuana mentorship program and ongoing series of industry networking events in partnership with Cheryl Shuman Inc., a public relations, media, product branding and business development firm.
Cheryl has accomplished so much extraordinary progress in worldwide Cannabis reform, reaching millions of parents through the utilization of mainstream media. We have grown from 45,000 followers to over 500,000 in less than a year, said Serra Frank, MFMIs Founding Director. Everything I have ever seen Cheryl do has been historic and monumental in Cannabis reform. She is leading not only moms but the entire movement by making history in the media.
Known as the Cannabis Queen of Beverly Hills, Cheryl Shuman celebrates her first year as Executive Director for MFMI on Mother’s Day this year. Cheryl says that she has, been working with Serra for many years now and have always been inspired by her vision and dedication to families around the world. I am honored to lead such a dynamic and ambitious organization with such a clear and focused missionimproving the lives of the worlds most vulnerable, women and children. The MFMI partnership with my marketing firm creates a wonderful opportunity for women around the world to follow in the footsteps of Pauline Sabin from the 1930s who led a group of dedicated women to overturn alcohol prohibition; today, we are making history working towards the end of cannabis prohibition.
In addition to launching a mentoring campaign and networking event series, MFMI and Cheryl Shuman also announce the Official Mom Squad, the name given to MFMIs organizational membership roster. “After ten years without an official membership, membership dues, or membership requirements, it is time for Moms for Marijuana to take the next step in becoming everything it is meant to be. Unity in our cause is the primary goal. It is our hopes to further the movement through acceptance of each other while negating a bully mentality that has attempted to infect our community. Through an organized, positive, and loving membership, we can ensure our voices echo into the future.”
Directed by Serra Frank and her original vision for promoting education, raising awareness, and creating discussion about the Cannabis plant all around the world, the Official Mom Squad will continue to mentor and guide all who consider themselves a Mom for Marijuana into a formidable collective force for marijuana legislative reformation. Through united efforts, all members can be active in helping realize everything the MFMI organization ever envisioned achieving.
For those interested in joining the Official Mom Squad, updates will be posted on the International facebook page in the near future – http://www.facebook.com/moms4mj – You can also join the mentorship program through Cheryl Shuman Inc, at this link – http://cherylshuman.com/vip-mentorship-program/
Women are the secret to legalization. We are the family decision makers and influencers in society; after all, women buy 85% of all household and consumer products, according to Adweek. Now we can use that influence to change laws, save lives, families and introduce parents to new possible careers in the green rush. As an entrepreneur, its exciting to be on the ground floor of the cutting edge of making news and witnessing the convergence of celebrity and cannabis culture, exclaimed Shuman.
“The right leadership team is everything. It was evident immediately, working with Cheryl and leveraging her character, knowledge and networking base these past few years, that it was a perfect fit in terms of values, integrity and personality. The leadership of Cheryl Shuman and her team elevate MFMIs exposure. The value of their ability to provide global celebrity and media exposure for our organization are priceless, said Serra Frank.
