    About LiveWell's Policy Agenda

    LiveWell Colorado’s mission is to increase access to healthy eating and active living by removing barriers that inequitably and disproportionately affect low-income communities and people of color.

    Our policy agenda reflects this commitment. LiveWell works with local, state and national partners to advance a comprehensive policy agenda. We work at the municipal, state and federal level to develop a sustainable, equitable and health-promoting food system, as well as an accessible and equitable active living and transportation environment.

    Our policy agenda is informed by community coalitions across Colorado, policy experts, and other state and national organizations. In 2017, we are working to ensure that a statewide transportation funding referendum includes specific dollars for pedestrian and bike infrastructure; and advancing a bill that ensures a comprehensive overview of our food system, makes  it easier for Colorado farmers to reach low-income populations, and promotes farm to school programs.
