National Policy Summit: Advocacy In Action

The Lupus Foundation of America invites you to join lupus activists from across the country as we unite in Washington, D.C. June 26-27, 2017 for the National Policy Summit: Advocacy In Action. The two-day Summit is an opportunity to share your story and educate Members of Congress about the true nature of the disease and why more must be done now to advance our cause on Capitol Hill.

Together, we have increased funding for lupus research and education, helped ensure access to quality care, and raised awareness of the disease in the halls of Congress, the White House and around the world. But more must be done, and now is the time. Join us in Washington, because together we can continue to make a difference.

 

 

Registration for the National Policy Summit is OPEN. Your registration fee for the National Policy Summit includes refreshments and lunch on June 26, and access to a training session, the panels, speakers, and Capitol Hill meetings. Summit attendees will receive a National Policy Summit bag and other giveaway items.

The early bird registration fee for the National Policy Summit is $50. After May 26, 2017, the registration fee is $75.

"The LFA has been a great resource, providing not only educational support but patient programs--educating us about how to manage our health--and through things like [this Summit], teaching us how to advocate for ourselves and make real change."
--Tiffany Peterson, founder of #lupuschat.
