- Introduction and Vision Zero
Advocacy is a critical piece of BFC’s work. And in a small org in a busy city its hard to have eyes on everything all the time. so we’re looking for help. We need folks who are interested in keeping an eye on agandas and long term planning calendars for local and county boards, committees and commissions and meeting with our BFC advocacy teams on a monthly basis to report back and to check in on what we’re doing.
We want to make sure we know everything thats happening in NoCo that affects our vision of increasing participation in active transportation (including development and land use issues), fostering neighborhood and street safety for vulnerable users, promoting equity and inclusion in transportation access and planning.
Our teams are organized into transportation, parks and environment, business, legislative, housing/land use, and community health.
We’ll also count on the action teams to be the core of our rapid mobilization team for time sensitive campaigns.
