Eliminating Colorectal Cancer Inequities

Supporting African-American men & other marginalized groups through advocacy, collaboration, education, funding, and research.

About Us

For more than 25 years, African-American men have died from colorectal cancer (CRC) at the highest rates of any racial/ethnic group in the United States.

Founded in 2021, the Colorectal Cancer Equity Foundation was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to increasing CRC equity among African-American men and other marginalized groups, no matter where they work, how much money they make, or where they live, worship, or play.

Dedicated to eradicating CRC while reducing its incidence and death disparities, the Foundation provides distinctive awareness, community engagement, prevention, research, and screening opportunities for the caregivers, friends, survivors, and families of those impacted by this preventable disease.

Our Vision

To engage a diverse array of stakeholders who champion the implementation of effective programs, research, and policies to eradicate colorectal cancer disparities among vulnerable communities.

Our Mission

To remove obstacles to colorectal cancer equity among African-American men and other underrepresented populations by increasing awareness of a preventable, beatable, and treatable disease no one has to die from.

Our Priorities

We influence policy change.

We fund innovative and critical research.
