We Offer Volunteer Opportunities in the Following Areas:


What Does a Lupus Activist do?

A lupus activist engages in educating their federal, state, and locally elected officials about the cruel mystery of lupus.
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 issues 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.
  • People living with lupus need your help! 

If you have a desire to invest your time and talents to have a positive impact on the lives of people with lupus, we have just the place for you! You can make the difference in the life of someone who is affected by this disease—you can be the person who provides help and hope to someone!
