Advocacy

Make your voice heard. 

Advocacy is a major component of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's 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 and colitis. 

Foundation advocates are calling for increased Federal funding for Crohn's and colitis research and awareness programs designed to improve the lives of patients.  The Foundation encourages its members, volunteers, and friends to become actively involved in advancing our public policy goals.  By sharing personal stories and providing crucial information about the impact of these devastating diseases, our advocates inform and inspire elected representatives in Congress.

We've already achieved great success in urging our legislators to implement responsible policies that can transform the lives of some 1.4 million Americans.  With your help, we can accomplish even more!
