Our mission is to improve the quality of life for BIPOC who are affected by IBD, Digestive Disorders and associated Chronic Illnesses; through Community, Research, Education, and Advocacy.


We are committed to advocating for the COGI community. With so many barriers preventing people of color from achieving optimal health outcomes, the fight for health equity is at the top of our list. We support opportunities that increase the quality of life of BIPOC patients/caregivers – this cannot be accomplished without advocacy.

Your voice matters, so SAY IT LOUD!

Our advocates are patients, caregivers, supporters, researchers, and healthcare providers. By sharing their stories, they ensure that the voices of those affected by digestive diseases are heard.

We need your voice.

Start making a difference today so that we can continue to improve the quality of life for IBD patients and improve access to care and research funding.
