Akronite of the Week

Fran Wilson, the Everyday Akron host the week of July 31, 2022

Meet Fran:

I’m Fran Wilson (they/them). I’m a 4th-gen Akronite and a neighborhood organizer. I live in the historic West Hill neighborhood nestled between Highland Square and Downtown — where my family has been in and out of for 100 years, where my family built the plumbing company, “Wilson Plumbing and Heating”, and where I grew up going to school and church.

We live in heavy times and I think we are all reflecting on our relationships with power and community. This week, I hope to share a bit more about our journey as a city and where we all might be heading if we work together and fight hard for a better future.
