The Advocacy Network ensures lupus concerns remain at the forefront of state and federal legislators. Advocacy Network Volunteers will educate legislators about lupus and our needs in Illinois. Training is offered twice a year and includes an overview of LFAI advocacy concerns, educational materials and even time to practice meeting with your legislator! Advocacy Network Volunteers are asked to contact their legislators twice annually.
