The Big Love Network:

Zach Freidhof, Kelly McHood, Kristie Leahy, and many other partners, are part of a larger community organizing & empowerment organization called the Big Love Network.

Big Love is an evolving network, helping Akron recreate its city and neighborhood based identities while reinvigorating the public commons through community empowerment and engagement. Big Love Network is inspired to build bridges and spark creative collaborations across race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender, and anything else that seemingly keeps us apart. The core of the network consists of organizers, gardeners, healing practitioners, and artists that facilitate neighbor-led, creative placemaking throughout Akron as a means for social change.

For information about project’s, the yearly winter transformational festival, volunteer opportunities and more, visit the Big Love website.
