LUPUS NEWS

Still time to advocate for lupus - Contact your legislators this week!

March 21, 2017


Lilly

The word lupus rang through the halls of the U.S. Capitol March 21 as over 70 passionate advocates visited 75 representatives, senators and staff to tell the dramatic story of lupus. But there's no reason to stop.  With your help as a virtual advocate, Congress can hear from thousands advocating for lupus all week!

Use automated tools provided by the Lupus Research Alliance Legislative Action Center to tell legislators why we need greater funding for scientific research at the National Institutes for Health and allocations to continue a dedicated lupus research program at the Department of Defense. Equally important is to convey why we must make sure that any new healthcare policy allows all people with this challenging disease to get the critical medical care they need. And to be most effective, share your own story – how does lupus affect you!

The more Congress hears what people with lupus endure, the more they will care, and the more they will do to help!
