Jacob Belgrad

Colorado State Transportation Advocate

Jacob Belgrad (He/Him/His) is a Transportation Advocate for the state of Colorado. Jacob was previously an environmental justice organizer for Mi Familia Vota. There, he advocated for our latino communities in a variety of ways but most notably in testifying for and helping pass the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) and Advanced Clean Cars 2 (ACC2) regulation. These regulations will decrease pollution and clean up our predominantly BIPOC highway corridor communities. Passionate about open dialogue and finding practical solutions to the issues that face our communities, Jacob hopes to engage others and empower voices to find solutions for mitigating the indiscriminate effects of climate change. One of such solutions is clean and equitable public transit. When he’s not hanging out with his cat Blue Jacob spends his time skateboarding, snowboarding, and playing guitar.
