Volunteers! New Advocacy Toolkits Are Available!


New to CCFA--our newly created Advocacy Toolkit!  Now volunteers from all over the country can learn how to advocate on behalf of the 1.4 million Americans with inflammatory bowel diseases. Take this with you on your legislative visits for "Day on the Hill" or as you travel day-to-day raising awareness.


This toolkit is a “how to” guide to teach you:

• Important tips when emailing your legislators
• Insight on setting up a visit with you legislators
• Helpful guidelines with key speaking points


With a growing number of Americans suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases, it is critical that your voices are heard. Now you can be an advocate wherever you go!


This toolkit can be downloaded here or you can contact your local chapter to find advocacy trainings in your area.  Make sure to download CCFA 2014 Advocacy Priorities as well! Questions? Contact Amy Kornbluth at akornbluth@ccfa.org.
