Change, one hug at a time

CHESTER, Pa. (WPVI) -- He's been traveling the country looking to spread unity with a simple gesture.

Ken Nwadike is hoping to make change one hug at a time.

The young activist is heading up the Free Hugs project--and today he was on the campus of Widener University in Chester, and he was literally hugging strangers as he walked around.

The university invited Nwadike as a part of series it launched after the divisive presidential campaign.

The goal is to help students and staff express their thoughts while showing mutual respect for one another.
