In 2011, a diverse set of non-profit and philanthropic partners came together to create Mile High Connects (MHC). Their mission was to ensure that the region’s investment in new transit service would provide greater access to opportunity and a higher quality of life for all of the region’s residents, particularly economically disadvantaged populations. To support this work, the Denver Equity Atlas presents more than 30 maps, providing a visual illustration (and discussion) of the current and future transit as it relates to the region’s demographics, housing, economy, educational opportunities, and health.
