Advocacy in Georgia

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.
