Ben Winig

Dedicated to building healthy communities through law and policy

I am a senior staff attorney and program director working at the intersection of the built environment and health. I regularly advise elected officials, public agency staff, community-based organizations, and public health advocates on a variety of active living and healthy planning strategies. I am a skilled trainer and facilitator, and have been a featured speaker at numerous conferences around the country. Before joining ChangeLab Solutions, I practiced municipal law at a private law firm in California. I served as general counsel and assistant city attorney for several public agencies throughout the Bay Area. I graduated from the University of Michigan, with distinction, and received my law degree and master’s in public affairs from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
