Denver CALC works with neighborhoods and residents to make it easier and safer for everyone to access biking, walking and transit in Denver. We do this by collecting and sharing data with communities and decision makers, working with Coalition partners on events and programs, and providing education and training for community leaders on health and the built environment.
