The Lupus Research Alliance’s advocacy efforts focus on urging Congress to provide the funds needed to support research into lupus that can lead to better treatments and, ultimately, a cure. Efforts also include ways to ensure increased diversity in clinical trials and reducing barriers to enrollment for all who want to participate.

In March of 2023, we Took it to the Hill to request more funding for lupus research and support for greater diversity in research representation. We will report on the progress as these requests move through Congress for Fiscal Year 2024. Meanwhile, reinforce our requests by asking to meet with your legislator when they are in their home district this August, 2023. If you would like information on setting up a meeting with your Representative, please email
