Keep It Local: Building Community Wealth

Keep it Local
Building Community (Wealth)


Wednesday, Oct. 18
10 a.m. to noon

Denver Regional Council of Governments
Independence Pass Conference Room (first floor)
1290 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203

The Denver area's rapid growth has made ensuring that all residents of the Denver region have access to employment opportunities, attainable housing, community services, businesses and natural resources increasingly difficult. Ensuring equitable access to opportunity is challenging for local governments, especially those with diminishing budgets and higher demands on staff. But such challenges are not faced by local governments alone. Hundreds of organizations including nonprofit agencies, cooperatives and developers also confront similar challenges, frequently employing innovative organizational structures, viewpoints and strategies for solutions.

Join us to learn about initiatives and protocols that support community-driven sustainability and wealth generation in the Denver region. Hear about the intersection between the work of local organizations and the ways local governments support them. Participants will have conversations about local and regional initiatives carried out by nonprofits and community-based organizations. They will tease out methods to build coalitions and support the work of such groups, especially when their interests align with those of public agencies.

Speakers will include:
• Aaron Miripol, Urban Land Conservancy
• Jane Harrington, Colorado Community Land Trust
• Dustin Ratcliff, Walk2Connect (cooperative)
