Strong Towns + Akron


Building a Stronger Akron Together

Welcome. We're Strong Towns, a nonprofit with a commitment to helping communities across America grow more financially resilient.

This year, we're spending time in Akron, Ohio getting to know the people and places that make this city great, and working with Akronites to talk about a more economically resilient future where residents are empowered and change happens neighborhood by neighborhood, from the ground up. 

Below you'll find stories, ideas and ways to get involved. We hope you'll join us.
