Raise your voice to fight lupus

We are the leader in stimulating federal support for lupus, generating more than $550 million for lupus research and education in the past five years. Every day we fight to ensure the government is responsive to the needs of the 1.5 million Americans living with lupus, and your voice is one of the most powerful tools we have.

Become an advocate and add your voice to the fight.
