Don’t miss your chance to represent the lupus community on The Hill to tell Congress why more funding for lupus research is critical! Registration closes on January 31st, so register now!
The Lupus Research Alliance (LRA) leads the world in funding the fundamental science that identifies targets for drug development. But without the resources that only the U.S. government can invest in medical research, scientists will not be able to keep pushing forward and new treatments cannot be delivered.
This year, we will explain why that funding is so vital in a briefing for Congress as well as individual visits. We need every advocate to share their lupus story so legislators understand what the complexity of lupus really means and what more research can achieve.
An intimate, inspirational and impactful meeting, these two days can make a difference not only in the lives of our nation’s leaders, but perhaps even in your own…
That’s what we hear from past attendees:
“It was an exhilarating day! We enlightened some and enticed them to learn more. If they could only see their expression when they start to imagine what it’s really like to live with lupus!” Mary
“When I was other purple scarves, I knew what I was fighting for and it gave me the extra energy and reminded me that we need to continue to fight.” Kelli
“We had a real emotional connection with our senators’ aide. He said he knew a little about lupus because his sister-in-law has the disease. But as my wife described her symptoms, we could see him fitting the pieces together of what his sister-in-law really goes through. He texted her our contact information so she’d know she’s not alone.” Jack
