Lupus purple was seen throughout the Capitol this week when advocates representing the Lupus Research Alliance visited Congress to tell members why they must allocate more funds to lupus research. You can join long-distance – just reach out to your representatives and senators by email and phone using our Legislative Action Center!
Our advocacy has succeeded before with budget increases to medical research and the creation of a dedicated Lupus Research Program at the Department of Defense. But for our 15th Annual Advocate for Lupus Research Day, we aim higher. This year we are requesting millions more to be dedicated just for lupus research.
Please go online today – or any time before March 28 – while Congress is reviewing the Fiscal Year 2020 budget. Use the automated tools of our Legislative Action Center to call and email your legislators. Tell them what lupus research means — how better treatments and a cure for lupus would change your life. The more people Congress hears from, the more they will care!
For their generous support of this meeting, the Lupus Research Alliance thanks Industry Sponsors: GSK, Eli Lilly and Company, and Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals
