Tell Congress to Budget More for Lupus Research & Ensure Diversity in Clinical Studies

Join the Lupus Research Alliance and advocates across the country to tell members of Congress why more funding for lupus research in Fiscal Year 2023  is so important!  We’ve done it before, and we’ll do it again! You can make a difference by engaging with your legislators when they are in their home districts this August.

Join us in asking Congress to: 

  • Provide $15 million for the Lupus Research Program operated under the Defense Health Program to fund more promising research projects that can deliver new treatment options for this devastating disease.
  • Co-sponsor The DIVERSE Trials Act to increase diversity in clinical trials and make it easier for all people with lupus to participate by reducing barriers to enrollment. 

Watch this video for strategies to help you engage with your legislators when they are in their district during August. The slide presentation can be found here.

Lupus advocates have gotten the job done in years past, but lupus needs to be top of mind once again while budgets for the next Fiscal Year are on the table! Every Senator and every Representative must hear from their constituents directly why they must care about this important health issue.
