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.
