Advocacy Tools and Resources

We are glad to count you as part of our team of volunteers from across the country advocating on behalf of the 3.1 million Americans living with inflammatory bowel disease.

Our resources will help you fine tune your advocacy skills, learn our legislative priorities, and feel comfortable sharing your story with legislators.
