LCBAG Organizational and Resource Development
 
 
 
Lake County Build a Generation (LCBAG) is building a movement for health and well-being in Lake County. We bring community members together to work on issues that matter most to all of us, such as food, housing, and health care. Over the last two decades, we have coordinated many community-wide efforts to improve community health and well-being, from school playground renovations to community racial equity trainings. This past November, LCBAG’s work was recognized nationally when the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) awarded Lake County a national “Culture of Health Prize.” In its award statement, RWJF cited many initiatives Lake County Build a Generation had led or supported. We believe: • Health is more than health care: We believe many factors influence our health, including housing, transportation, education, or access to healthy food and physical activity. • Inequity is real: Living a healthy life is more easily accessible for some people than it is for others because of the environment in which they live. • Inequity is systemic: Shortcomings at the systems-level aren’t the fault of any individual—they stem from the distribution of wealth and power that has been perpetuated over decades. Where we live impacts more than just our access to healthy food, it also dictates how much residents pay for basic needs and services. • Change is possible. We have the ability to change the way we approach health by changing what doesn’t work in our community and identifying what does. By engaging a diverse group of Lake County residents in community change, we will ensure that a healthy life is accessible to all Lake County residents, regardless of who they are or how much they make. Lake County Build a Generation is located in Lake County, Colorado, a small, rural community at the base of Colorado’s two tallest mountains. Lake County provides access to residents and tourists alike to skiing, hunting, fishing, hiking ,camping, and other outdoor activities.
