Become a Lupus Activist
A lupus activist engages in educating their federal, state, and locally elected officials about the cruel mystery of lupus.
What does a Lupus Activist do?
Whether through a letter, email, phone call, or face-to-face meetings with elected officials, lupus activists are the vital voice on legislation and policies impacting people with lupus and their families. An activist’s voice makes a difference.
Who can be a Lupus Activist?
Anyone who cares about lupus! You don't have to be an expert in government affairs to share your knowledge and story about lupus.
How can I learn how to advocate?
The Lupus Foundation of America created the Legislative Action Center to help keep you informed. In the Legislative Action Center, you can:
- Identify Members of Congress who represent you in Washington.
- Read legislative alerts about new bills or upcoming votes.
- See how your Representative or Senators voted on critical lupus issues.
Send emails or letters to your elected officials in Washington.
