Support Groups are moving to virtual meetings

We care about your health and the health of our staff and volunteers. We also know that connection with your fellow lupus warriors is important, especially in a time of social distancing. We are moving support groups to be virtual. See below for more details as we launch a large number of new groups!.

See you online (soon)!

Support Groups: Opportunities for information exchange and emotional support, all facilitated by a trained volunteer and fellow lupus warrior.

Our Southern California region is working hard to provide the educational and emotional support you may need.  Since all of our groups are virtual on Zoom, we are requiring a one-time registration to ensure privacy and safety while enjoying our group discussions.
