Dozens of mothers gathered in Kalamazoo's Bronson Park today to raise awareness about breastfeeding.

The Big Latch On happens every year in communities across the country. The event coincides with world breastfeeding week.

Organizers and mothers hope events like this will help normalize breastfeeding in public.

"It's important to show other people, that there is a lot of people doing it and you can find support in doing it,” said Renndi Dymond, one of the participants at the event.

More than 30,000 people worldwide were expected to participate in The Big Latch On.

There were also similar events that occurred in Battle Creek and Coldwater.
