Be an Advocate

Advocacy is a major component of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America’s (CCFA) mission. Our advocates are not only patients, but family members, friends, caregivers, and doctors who want to make their voices heard and see a future free from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis

Here are some ways you can help us and advocate as a college student:

  • Call for increased federal funding for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis research and awareness programs designed to improve the lives of patients like yourself.

  • Encourage your friends, other students, professors, and campus staff to become actively involved in advancing our public policy goals.

  • Share your personal stories and provide crucial information about the impact of these devastating diseases on your social networks using #YouAreNotAlone and join our campaign.

  • Inform and inspire your elected representatives in Congress.
