Take It To The Hill with the Lupus Research Alliance this March  

January 2023

Advocates like you have been essential in our efforts to raise support on Capitol Hill for awareness of the need for more lupus research funding. Click here to read about the impressive 2022 advocacy accomplishments we can all take pride in. But there is more to do in 2023. We must continue the momentum and increase the number of legislators ready to champion in Congress the needs of people with lupus. 

 We invite everyone to participate in the virtual advocacy events this MarchAs part of our Take It To The Hill program, we will give you the information you need to email, call, or arrange virtual meetings with your legislators and their staff.  

We will host an online training session on March 14 to go over the specific requests we are asking members of Congress to support. Then, the week of March 27 we will ask you to reach out your members offices with our requests.  

Thanks go to the PA Fund for Patient Advocacy at the Lupus Research Alliance for helping make this program possible.
