“Racism, bigotry, intolerance and violence are hateful and have no place in American society.
The Lupus Research Alliance is committed to ensuring a more caring, loving, equitable and healthy world for those we serve. The lupus community is large and includes a diverse range of racial, religious, ethnic, national and socio-economic groups but African Americans are disproportionately impacted by lupus.
We stand with our trustees, volunteers, donors, staff and other colleagues in condemning racism wherever and whenever it is manifested. This is a moral imperative that we proudly embrace.
We aspire to a world where health disparities no longer exist and where all of us are treated with the dignity and respect that are our right by virtue of our membership in the human family.”
