- 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.
Mile High Connects launched in 2011 to take collective action on community led & driven solutions in neighborhoods impacted by the RTD light rail expansion.
Mile High Connects and its table members are focused on strategies that intentionally address disparities and bring community solutions to light. We are working in three target geographies and in partnership with organizations influencing regional and statewide shifts.
Join us in working to leverage the existing and expanding transit system to connect residents from low-income communities and communities of color to affordable housing, good jobs, quality schools, fresh food and places that promote activity and health.
