The weak interaction between nucleons induces a multipole moment called the anapole moment. It can be measured in parity forbidden transitions that become allowed due to the anapole moment. In the FrPNC collaboration we have a program to measure it in laser cooled francium atoms by driving electric dipole (E1) transitions between hyperfine levels. I will describe the method to be used and the progress we have made in the collaboration so far.
