We believe in creating paths to opportunity through local transit.

Our Mission:

To prioritize and increase equitable investment into community driven solutions by advancing collective action among nonprofits, community organizers, private and public sector, influencing how vulnerable communities experience growth. 

Our Values:

  • Quality, accessible housing is a human right for all that can only be achieved by addressing historic systemic & institutionalize discrimination.
  • Economic opportunity is the key to a vibrant region and can only be achieved when we have strong local economies where individuals have the ability to choose their path.
  • Mobility is a fundamental need that provides all members of the community with access to employment, healthcare, food, and other services. 

Our History: 

Mile High Connects, a collaborative fiscally sponsored by the Colorado Center on Law and Policy, launched in 2011 to take collective action on community led & driven solutions in neighborhoods impacted by the RTD light rail expansion. 

Mile High Connects’ strategies intentionally address disparities and bring community solutions to light. We work in three target geographies and in partnership with organizations to influence regional and statewide shifts.

Join us in connecting low-wealth communities and communities of color to healthy, safe affordable housing, good jobs, fresh food and places that promote activity and health.
